Killing Season

Synopsis: Killing Season tells the story of two veterans of the Bosnian War, one American, one Serbian, who clash in the Appalachian Mountain wilderness. FORD is a former American soldier who fought on the front lines in Bosnia. When our story begins, he has retreated to a remote cabin in the woods, trying to escape painful memories of war. The drama begins when KOVAC, a former Serbian soldier, seeks Ford out, hoping to settle an old score. What follows is a cat-and-mouse game in which Ford and Kovac fight their own personal World War III, with battles both physical and psychological. By the end of the film, old wounds are opened, suppressed memories are drawn to the surface and long-hidden secrets about both Ford and Kovac are revealed.

(Reporter #1) Another day

and another round of violence

in Syria on Saturday.

Fighting in the northern city

of Atma has raged for days

causing widespread destruction

and casualties that have now

topped 35,000,

with many of those civilians.

The addition of more troops

in what are sure to be

even bloodier battles ahead

has fueled worries

within the rebel ranks

and around the world.

Talks in Washington calling

for the arming of insurgents

in Syria.

(Reporter #2) We should start considering all options,

including arming

the opposition.

(Reporter #1) Experts say arming the fighting groups

among the opposition

is a sure way

to drag the country

into a protracted civil war.

It will also

further marginalize

those in the opposition who

have advocated non-violence

or to advance

political strategy.

[Oven ding]

[phone ringing]

(Recording) Please leave a message after the beep.

[Beep] Hey, Dad, it's Chris.

(Sarah) Did you get him?

(Chris) No, I got the machine.

(Sarah) Why don't you try his cell?

(Chris) 'Cause he doesn't have a cell.

(Sarah) You could email him.

(Chris) [laughs] Or a computer.

So I'll just leave a message--

Hey, buddy.

How's it going?

Hey. It's good.

It's great.

How about you?

You been radio silent for a while.

Just, you know,

keeping busy.

As usual.

So, hey, listen.

I don't know

if you saw the invite,

but tomorrow's

Matthew's baptism.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Starting him early, huh?

(Chris) What's that?


Just, yeah, that's great.

That'll be a great day.

You know,

we were hoping you were going to make it down.

To be honest,

it's tough for me tomorrow.

Come on, Dad.

What do you got going on?

Just, you know, odds and ends.

Look, if it's

the church thing,

you could just come

to the party afterwards.

You don't even

have to wear a tie.

That sweetens the deal.


He coming?

Yeah, Dad.

He's going to be there.

Mom's been married

to the guy for 20 years,

you've said about as many words to him.

Yeah, well...

Look, like I said, son...

things have been keeping me

a little busy up here.

Right. Well...

Won't bug you about it anymore.

You're not bugging me.

No, you're not bugging me.

Well, hey, maybe we'll drive up sometime,

surprise you.

Yeah, well, better call first.


Okay. Well...

Leave you to it.

Goodbye, Dad.

Bye, Chris.






God damn.

Oh, shit.

Ah, shit.

[Park braking]


You got engine trouble?

Long way from home, aren't you?

Well, that is the whole idea.

I am on sabbatical

for my health.

Yeah, well,

good luck on that.

May I take a look?

I got it covered, thanks.

It's no trouble.

I just have

to tow it into town.

But that is

30, 40 miles, no?

Please allow me.

I drove hack in London for seven years

and I had no choice but to become

expert on British automobiles.

Really, I don't need any help.

Thank you.

Okay. Okay.



I just...

I get this shooting pain in my leg.

Comes and goes.

Always puts me in a bad mood.

Try it.

[Engine sputtering]

Ah, you got to be kidding me.

God damn it!

[Honking] Patience.

I'm trying to revive car.

I don't want to have

to do the same for you.

Well, I should've

just towed it in.

Okay, once more,

if you please.

[Engine starting]




You're a miracle worker.

Thank you.
