Based on a true story in the midst of the war in 1993, a young Bosnian soldier intervenes to save the life of a Muslim shopkeeper and the film jumps ahead 12 years to examine the consequences of that (tragic and heroic) act for the five people most closely affected.

A straightforward and ultimately moving film about the damage done to people's soul from the hostilities that racked the region for years, dealing with the emotional baggage and the aftermath of fighting. The pace is deliberate and the film simmers rather than explodes and with top-notch performances and traditional craft this is an appealing entry on the festival circuit. (Sundance)

Critics

“An unorthodox morality tale about Serb-on-Serb crime in which concentric narratives make for considerable resonance”
