Narrow is the Gate (2002)

Original title: Kitsas on värav


Narrow is the Gate

For the few Serbs who remain in Kosovo, Gracanica Convent is an island of peace, guarded not only by the prayers of the nuns inside, but also by the NATO tanks guarding the convent walls. At the gateway between these two worlds is Sister Teodora, who with a joke and a tear, tries to balance her hostility to Albaninas with her religious calling to love them.
