MILA is a war story told from a child's perspective. It was inspired by vivid stories the director's mother often told her of World War II. In the film, the character of Mila represents the best of
humanity. Although she has lost everything - her family, her house, and her peace - she still clings to hope. With little more than hope, her humanity and her imagination, Mila manages to have a
profound impact on others, including an inconsolable stranger who saves her. While the film is inspired by true events that occurred in Trento, Italy, in 1943, Mila represents all children, in any war, of any time. The decision was made not to have dialogue in order to create a film that speaks to everyone. To that end, it seemed natural to rely on the universal language of music.

Language: Without dialogue
