Synopsis


I try to instil in our girls a sense of owning their destiny ...


And what do I get?


Two people I don't understand.


In a world I no longer understand.


Tena Štivicic was inspired by stories from her own family to write 3 Winters, an epic family drama that moves between three alternating time periods and four generations of one Croatian family.


From the 1945 victory of Tito's communist supporters, to the 1990 break-up of Yugoslavia, to 2011 and the brink of EU membership - the fortunes of the Kos family are entwined with that of their country as political upheaval mirrors familial struggles.
