CGiii Comment

There is so much to admire...the writing, the performances, the emotion.

The(ir) Blurb...

Almir is a closeted gay man struggling with self-acceptance. Left high and dry by his married lover, Almir decides to spend New Year's Eve with his dying friend Militsa. As the city celebrates, the two talk about their lives and loves, but does Almir dare to tell his closest friend his deepest secret? Ficus is a charming and heartfelt exploration of friendship and hope in contemporary Sarajevo.
