GOD EXISTS, HER NAME IS PETRUNYA. (2019) 100 minutes. Language: Macedonian.
Every January in the small town of Stip in North Macedonia, the high priest throws a wooden cross into the local waters, while dozens of men charge for it. The one who finds the cross is believed to gain overall good fortune and prosperity. An unemployed single young woman Petrunya jumps into the water and catches the cross.
In this conservative setting, her competitors feel they have every right to be furious: a woman dared to compete and achieve what they failed to succeed in. Petrunya insists that she is the winner and refuses to return the cross.
