Grbavica

Twelve year old, Sara and her mother Esma live in post war Sarajevo. Esma takes a job as a waitress at a nightclub to pay for a field trip Sara wants to go on. Sara makes friends with Samir, who like Sara does not have a father. What surprises Samir is that Sara doesn't know how her father died. Supposedly both had died as war heroes, but Sara's mother will not talk about it.

The girls soon learn that if their father died a hero, then they can go on the field trip for free. They must support this with a certificate stating they are offspring of war heroes. This makes life very complicated for Sara and Esma, as she tells Sara her father's corpse was not found, and they do not have a certificate. She knows she cannot get a certificate, but how will she ever tell Sara the truth about her father?
