In 1991, the country of Yugoslavia began to fracture into separate nations. On the pretext of maintaining Yugoslavia's integrity, the Serbian dominated Yugoslav army attacked first Slovenia, then Croatia.
In April 1992, in the hope of securing international protection, Bosnia declared its independence. This was rejected by many Bosnian Serbs. Aided by the remnants of the Yugoslav army, they set out to claim as much territory as they could.
They systematically cleansed towns and villages of their Muslim populations, while turning their guns on the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo. This cosmopolitan city, a symbol of inter-faith co-operation, was cut off from the outside world and became a city under siege.
This film is based on actual events that took place in 1992 and 1993.
