From 1992 to 1995, the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina was one of the most publicized wars in the world. It was the destruction of a society where cultures and religions have always been mixed together.
Since the Dayton peace agreement, the news has dried up. And yet, how to live together again when the war involved civilians and neighbors?
From Sarajevo to Srebrenica, from town to town, meeting people famous and anonymous, from war orphan to the President of Bosnia-Herzgovina, it is waking up in the narrator these unbearable images of the past but also others gleaned from his cinematographic imagination.
Beyond the clinical diagnosis of a sick country stuck in a endless after war, this film is a love song for people who still struggles for tolerance and multi-ethnicity.
