Mothers, women and other Srebrenica survivors who were our support, encouragement and inspiration, and many friends who gave us support.

The main roles in the film were played by Jasna Đuričić, Izudin Bajrović, Boris Isaković, Johan Heldenbergh, Raymond Thiry, Boris Ler, Dino Bajrović, Emir Hadžihafizbegović and Edita Malovčić.
