An epic tale of hatred and reconciliation documented over five years in Albania’s mountainous north, a place stuck obstinately in a patriarchal past.
An 18-year-old woman is killed by a bullet intended for her father. It is the tragic outcome of a bitter family feud. Her father's cousin is found guilty by Albania's judicial system and is serving a jail term for her murder. However, under the country's ancient code of law (the Kanun), her father is entitled to take blood revenge. Religious and legal authorities, each with their own agenda, try to sway his decision. Marija Zidar's epic documentary was filmed over five years in Albania's mountainous north.

Marija Zidar is a Slovenian filmmaker with a background in journalism. She also studied sociology. She has written four mid-length documentaries and directed one. Reconciliation is her debut feature documentary.
Illustrates… the extremely difficult, emotionally charged, sometimes political path to reconciliation.
