1943: A platoon of war weary Domobran soldiers prepares to defend a strategically valuable strip of land from outside forces wishing to invade the independent Croat state. 1993: A squadron of HVO soldiers from the Bosnian Croat Army battles to defend its homeland in the bloody Yugoslavian Civil War. Fifty years apart, these two armies are fighting to defend exactly the same land. Although fighting for two different causes they are walking the same well trodden path and share the same motivations and ideologies. As they move toward a haunting and symbolically important cemetery, can either escape the inevitable bloody end and break a cycle stretching back hundreds of years? The winner of 15 international film awards, this powerful war film has a unique style, seamlessly blending two parallel narratives toward one ultimately explosive finale.
