Half-Sister

Drama

When two estranged half-sisters are forced to move in together, they must confront their shared past and decades of pent-up resentment. Irena, (played by co-writer Ursa Menart, who also directed MY LAST YEAR AS A LOSER), is freshly separated from her husband. She has nothing in common with her tomboyish, aggressive, vegan half-sister Neža - except that they have the same father. Director Damjan Kozole (NIGHTLIFE) drew inspiration from his own experiences learning as an adult that he had a half-brother. "HALF-SISTER is a brilliant character study, the near-perfect script an exception in today's landscape of atmospheric non-narratives." (filmuforia)
