    • Synopsis
    • Sarajevo, after 11th September 2001. Karim works as deminer in the hills around the city while waiting to be sent to Iraq with his group. His main reason -- the money. But a love story with unhappy ending will change his life. It's a tale about a love triangle between him, his best friend Juka and Ivana, girl from Belgrade, but at the same time this is a story about the clash between West and Islam and how one young Bosnian copes with this issue.
      Karim is a Bosnian Muslim, but he is not a "walking mine"; he only tries to de-mine his own little corner of the earth and to make it safer. This is "sevdah story" from Bosnia.
