Experiencing Interruptions?

Lord of the house

A rebellious Kosovar midwife fights for her freedom, against the century-old Albanian traditions based on male-dominance that her family lives by. She is in her sixties now, and looking back at her life in which she fought so hard for her position.
But as she grows older, she realises that family is family and what she longs for most, is her family’s love and appreciation.
Her quest is set against the background of a transforming society where the role of these old customs, written up in the ‘Kanun’, is changing, and people struggle to find their place between tradition and change.
