A personal exploration of the impact war has on an “ordinary” person. Images in which a young girl - that was 6 years old when the war began - is recollecting her childhood are interlaced with guilty pleas from the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, showcasing the absurdity of an interethnic conflict, in which those who used to be neighbors and friends have become aggressors and victims.Without seeing an actual war scene, it is the war that becomes the real “protagonist”, contaminating society with big words like state, nation or religion, while generating hate and violence.
As an unsettling immersion in the anomalies of our contemporary world, the film traces the painful way in which a human being may forever lose its trust in humanity.
