    • Synopsis
    • 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 trouble: with his neighbours or even with local political bigwigs. Yet if he does not go, his wife will think he’s a coward, the grieving family will never forgive him – and he might have trouble forgiving himself. This is a compelling tale of everyday life in a fractured society,
      and a world where paranoia, comedy and drama co-exist. It is also an astute psychological portrait of a man who is forced to cross the invisible line that
      divides two communities. Above all, it is the story of a man who lost everything that defined him, when his country disintegrated.
