Painkiller is nominated for the Nordisk Film & TV Fond Prize 2024.


Dijana is a proud Balkan mom and retired cleaner. Her daughter Andrea is officially a successful artist, but unofficially still living with her mom. The desire for self-realization has never touched a single cell in Dijana's body. She loves her daughter boundlessly but despises her "job.” When healthcare fails to help Dijana with her chronic pain, Andrea decides to treat her mom herself – and Dijana becomes the involuntary protagonist in her daughter's new art project.
