In the winter of 1991, a 12-year-old Serbian girl was murdered in Zagreb. A quarter of a century later, director Oliver Frljić is working on a theatre play about the case. Rehearsals become a collective process of psychotherapy, and the 12-year-old actress Nina feels as if the war had never ended. Srbenka examines how the generation born after the Yugoslav Wars copes with the dark shadows of history.
