Film Synopsis:

Herzegovina was in the grips of an unusually harsh winter on the snowy morning in 1985 when teenage sisters Sima and Drazenka decided to walk to Mostar to help their mother clean the hallways of the building where she worked. In the blizzard, the sisters fell into a deep pit, where they lay for the next eight days before being found, barely alive. This black-and-white documentary explores their incredible story.
