    • Synopsis
    • Year 1993, the bleakest time of war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. A group of actors from Belgrade, utterly unaware of what they’re setting themselves up for, embark on a search for quick earnings – on a “tour” around the Serbian Krajina. However, there they are thrust into the heart of war and begin to wander from warfront to warfront, from one army to the next.
      During their horrible journey they meet Serbian, Muslim and Croatian fighters, are faced with hopeless situations but always seem to work their way out of them. Their naivety, which put them in the midst of these horrific events in the first place, is also what saves them. While putting their acting skills to use, they manage to save themselves from perilous situations they encounter every step of the way. During their “tour”, filled with various ordeals and serious humiliation, they preserve the quality that every actor must have – a childish passion for play. That quality is so far removed from what is in the souls of the people who are at war that it leaves the fiends around them perplexed and protects the group of actors during their entire journey, as a sort of guardian angel.
      A few days later, after having experienced all the horrors of war and having even been on the brink of death on a few occasions, they return to their theatre as different people. The war had changed them: they are no longer the innocent, child-like creatures who look forward to play but people with a dark shadow cast over their souls.
