Drama students from Kosovska Mitrovica, together with Teodora, gathered after graduation and shared their experience of studying in Kosovo. From their entrance exam till the end of the studies, they lived together, changed apartments, took care of each other and every day, sang new made up songs. 

The Northern City is an observation documentary. Camera is either static or moving, depending on the dynamic of individual scenes. The film follows the conversation of students in an apartment, Teodora’s trip to Kosovska Mitrovica and the entrance exam in acting. Through choreography shown at the end, Teodora illustrates how she feels about Kosovska Mitrovica through  movement, dancing on the Bridge of Peace with the song of hodja and church bells.
