When Slavko's old friend Djulaga dies, Slavko feels obliged to go to the funeral. But in his hometown of Mostar, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, this simple social obligation has the potential to get him into all kinds of troubles with his neighbors or even with local political bigwigs. This is a compelling tale of everyday life in a fractured society, and a world where paranoia, comedy and drama intertwine. It is also an astute psychological portrait of a man who is forced to cross the invisible line that divides two communities living in a single town. Above all, it is the story of a man who lost everything that defined him when his country disintegrated.
