Short synops

... In the summer of 1995. NATO planes bombed a number of Serbian military positions in Republic of Srpska. Some of the projectiles missed and hit civilian houses. This is known as the collateral mistake...Is collateral damage as harmless as it sounds ?...

... Before the civil war in Bosnia, 150.000 Serbs lived in Sarajevo. According to the Dayton Peace Agreement, only a part of the outlying district of Sarajevo (Dobrinja) was assignedd to the Serbs. In some places the dividing line runs right through a residential area. Or worse, right through a block of flats, so that families are cooking their food in Bosnia and watching TV in the Republic of Srpska ...

... What brings,after 3,5 years a meeting of two Sarajevo buddies, SASHA (a Serb) and MIRZET (a Moslim),who had spent the war in trenches opposite each other, secretly meeting on one of the Sarajevo hills (a new Dayton border line)?...
