THE WOMAN WHO BECAME A CAT (feature)MAJA, 20’s, moves to Belgrade from an Eastern Serbian town bordering Romania, rich with its own particular folklore and superstition. Her newfound freedom from her religious aunt DALIBORKA, and her latent sexual awakening with DARKO, an actor on the film set she works on, become a catalyst for her unexplainable metamorphosis.
