Trailer

The famous Macedonian director Milcho Manchevski’s latest film, “Willow“, traces women’s struggles with tradition, with notions of loyalty, with the control exercised over their bodies, with problems such as pregnancy and adoption. Their goal is not to change the world or the conservative society they are living in, but their personal cause – to become mothers, turns them into incredible heroines.

Three Macedonian women have to contend with control over their bodies, tradition, loyalty, pregnancy and adoption. They have not set out to change the world or society, but their struggle to become mothers makes them unlikely heroines. The three bittersweet stories, one medieval, two contemporary, mirror and contrast one another, exploring themes of love, trust and motherhood.

A middle-aged, recently divorced father is furious that his nine-year-old daughter can’t spend her birthday with him, and he bursts into her classroom with a birthday gift, a cake and a rifle. A hostage crisis ensues, and the Mayor of the county tries to solve it and thus hopefully score some points before the upcoming elections. The situation arouses interest of the media, particularly of a local web journalist. The young policeman whose son is amongst the pupils trapped inside the classroom will also try to do his best to help. But when the kidnapper finally calms down, it may be too late to save the children.
