Mira Furlan plays the ethereal voice of Sava. Once the longest river in Yugoslavia she converses with her people who share memories, dreams and visions of the future on a 990km odyssey downstream. Sava is a witness to human history; a conduit between East and West, the dividing line of great empires and a common thread between nations. Today she flows along borders through Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia. As her final words ring out, Sava sings.
