- Ferdi LUTVIJI
Ferdi is an ethnic Turk who runs guest houses and apartments in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. He has earned money from the tourism and real estate boom over the past few years and has had the help of his wife Nurdan but despite her faithfulness and his adherence to Islam, he always chases single women who stay at his properties. Nurdan cannot endure Ferdi’s callous treatment of her and after a confrontation, she leaves. Ferdi gradually becomes aware of how much her existence is important to him and decides to go back to her home-town in Macedonia. Will he be able to win back her love or has Nurdan checked out of their marriage for good?
For this indie title, a Malaysian film director and his Japanese staff travelled to Eastern Europe and worked with locals to give a slice of life from the Balkans.
