Sundance triple award winner Hive is a searing drama based on the true story of Fahrije, who, like many of the other women in her patriarchal village, has lived with fading hope and burgeoning grief since her husband went missing during the war in Kosovo. In order to provide for her struggling family, she pulls the other widows in her community together to launch a business selling hot pepper preserves, a local food product. Together, they find healing and solace in considering a future without their husbands — but their will to begin living independently is met with hostility.
