“As much an examination of toxic masculinity as of PTSD in war-torn former Yugoslavia.” — WF
The armed conflicts of the 1990s not only visibly destroyed the land of former Yugoslavia, but also left the deepest wounds in the memory of each of its belligerent nations. Less than two decades since the war ended, a group of veterans gather at a remote mountain hotel for a therapy session over several days. The former soldiers, obstinately holding on to their fundamental masculinity and their prejudices, refuse to expose the inhumanity of the atrocities perpetrated – be it by them or by someone else.
