Abstract:

When Sally Met Selma is the story of a wedding, a war, and a very unlikely reunion. Sally became known as the Angel of Mostar when she rescued ten-year-old Selma and her brother from the war-torn city of Mostar in 1993. The children were severely injured when a mortar exploded near their house and though they both needed surgery, there was only enough anesthetic for one child. Selma insisted that her brother should have it and her arm had to be amputated without anesthetic. Hearing there were wounded children in desperate need of help, Sally convinced the Croats to lend her an ambulance and crossed the front line under fire. She found the children lying in the basement of a makeshift hospital where the floor was awash with blood. Sally drove the children and their mother to safety and went on to rescue around two hundred wounded children from the besieged city. This moving documentary is the story of how Sally saved Selma, how they lost each other, and how finally - 17 years later - they were reunited, when Selma invited Sally to be a guest of honour at her wedding in New York.
