The Bosnian actress Vernesa Berbo came to Germany during wartime. There she can work professionally but her roles are ones embodying East-European women; she must either play characters from an archaic / primitive cultural background or women in socially precarious situations: cleaning ladies, prostitutes, drug addicts, bar-room torch singers... The film SHORT FOR VERNESA B. plays on the irony of her fate - one of never breaking with her wartime past.
