Synopsis:

Bosnia, 1993. In the midst of the Bosnian war, Serbian soldier Marko witnesses the brutal aggression of Haris, a Muslim civilian, by three fellow soldiers. Marko interferes and saves Haris, but is beaten to death by the infuriated soldiers. 25 years later, the war is over but the wounds of the conflict are still open. Marko’s father is rebuilding a church and he is offered help by one of Marko’s killers’ son and hesitates about accepting it. Marko’s friend, a renowned surgeon in Belgrade, faces terrible choices when told to operate on one of the three soldiers on the verge of death.
