Before the war, the Republic

of Bosnia and Herzegovina

was part of one of the most ethnically and

religiously diverse countries in Europe.

Muslims, Serbs and Croats

lived together in harmony.

Bosnia and Herzegovina 1992.

Go get ready.

Get out of here.

Come to Mommy.

Go, go, go, go!


It's too much!

You look gorgeous!

Great! Come here.

What are you doing?

Just this. A bit like this.

Oh, come on!

Okay, show me "sexy." What?

What time is it?

And this.

Don't forget this.

Thanks for helping me with him.

That's what I came

back here for.

I'm so excited for you.

Do you remember

how to get there?

No, no. Keep it.


Have fun.

I love you.

You are worth the wait.


I have something for you.

Thank you. Thank you, thank you.

And this song is for lovers.

Have them make

more space outside.

Secure the area.

We need more blood. Okay?

Everything will be all right.

Everything will be all right.


Four Months Later.

Ajla. Wake up.

Is that Azra?

I can't see.

Where are they taking the men?

Where's your passport?

I don't know.

Where's your passport?

I don't know!

Open the door!

Get your coats and get out.


Let's go!

All the men, up!


Let's go!

Come on!

Let's go!

Come on, come on!

Come. To the bus.

Let's go, let's go.

To the bus.

Let's go, let's go, let's go!

Come on.

To the bus.

Where are you taking her?

Don't, don't.

Hey, let's go.

Don't, don't.

Let's go!

Hurry UP! Hurry UP! Hurry UP!

Hurry up, grandma.


Tell me.

Do you know how a

shepherd counts sheep?

No. How?

One, two, three, mwah, five, six.


Give me your purse.

Give me that coat.

Which of you can cook?

Not a sh*t cook, a real cook.

I'm a doctor.

I can sew.

Anything you need.

Coats. Curtains. I can make

something for the beds. I can...

Can you f***?




What is all this now, eh?

Is everybody having fun?

Let me do this one.

Are you hiding

something from me?

This one's done.

Hurry up! All this

is taking too long.

Are you okay?

I'm in constant fear

that they will come for us.

Everything's going to be all right.

You'll see.

They cut our electricity.

They cut our water.

How can you say everything

will be all right?

I don't even know if my sister is alive.

I know.

What am I going to do with him?

I have to get out of here.

I have to run away with him.

Maybe on a humanitarian

aid convoy.

They're attacking humanitarian

aid convoys as well.

We have to stay calm.

Why don't you get some sleep and

let me play with the little one.

You think we are too harsh?

I understand you.

You are young.

You don't care about the past.

We Serbs fought

the Turks for 500 years

and stopped them

from conquering Europe.

In 1914, we stood against

the Austro-Hungarian Empire,

and we brought it down.

We kicked Hitler's

ass, and we won.

One million Serbs were

killed in World War II.

This land is soaked

with Serbian blood.

And now they want us to live

here under Muslim rule?

In a Muslim state?

I recognize people.

Sometimes I get into a house

and I recognize their faces.

They're just pretending to

be good neighbors, Danijel.

Under Tito, they hid

their treacherous faces,

waiting for the opportunity to

destroy Yugoslavia and attack us.

I am a Serb patriot.

You don't have to question that.

Are you?

Then why are you

questioning our methods?

You think the rest of the world

will ignore all this? I don't.

The UN has already sent

peacekeepers to Croatia.

They will not turn their

backs on all of this.

Of course they see everything,

but they will not attack us.

They won't do anything.

And they know we are the right

partners for negotiations.

They need us.

They will not attack.

Bolster your men.

And finish cleansing this area.

You don't want your

men to doubt you.

And you, Father?

I had my doubts.

I have to go now.

Do strong work, Danijel.

Make me a proud father.

No. No!

Not again,

you swine! No!

Oh, please!

No! Please! No!


Why did you sit there?

Stand up.


Remember how things were

when it was just you and me

in the club,

before this madness.


I couldn't find you anywhere.

People are often not

what they seem to be.

Do you want to know my secret?

I'm trying to have a

conversation with you here.

Do you want to know

my secret, Ajla?


I don't like taking

part in this war.

To kill people I've

gone to school with.

I find this war very

difficult to stomach.

But my father,

Nebojsa Vukojevich,

General Vukojevich,

thinks differently.

I told my men that they are

not allowed to touch you,

that you are my property.


Come on, get out!

People who leave

their homes are at risk of being shot.

Red Cross and

UN relief convoys,

even women and children

looking for food,

are being targeted.

The images of this attack galvanized

international opinion against the Serbs.

But Western governments don't want

to intervene in the conflict.

The American Secretary of State says,

"We don't have a dog in that fight."

Across Bosnia, nearly 6,000

people have been killed to date.

More coffee over here.

A million have been

forced from their homes,

creating Europe's biggest refugee

crisis in close to 50 years.

The causes of conflict

lie in the breakup,

after 40 years

of Communist rule,

of old Yugoslavia.

Come in, Ajla.
