“Housekeeping for Beginners” was North Macedonia’s official submission to the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film.

Home is where you belong.

From acclaimed filmmaker Goran Stolevski comes a story exploring the universal truths of family, both the ones we’re born into and the ones we find for ourselves.

Dita never wanted to be a mother, but circumstances force her to raise her girlfriend’s two daughters — tiny troublemaker Mia and rebellious teen Vanesa.

A battle of wills ensues as the three continue to butt heads and become an unlikely family that has to fight to stay together.
