Upon turning 18, Salih leaves the orphanage where he has grown up and sets off to find his lost family. The quest leads him to a Serbian farm, where he begins working. Suddenly, when he least unexpected it, he has found a home. Will he ever be able to let go of the ghosts of his past and be happy in his new life? As tensions escalate, disquieting secrets bubble to the surface… A gripping tale of family, love and identity, My Mother’s Wound follows Salih as he searches for a trail of hope amongst war-torn lives.
