Toma (Boris Isakovic), a Serb, and Ana (Mirjana Jokovic), a Croat, are two childhood friends who fall in love with each other. With their families' help, they build a house of their own and later they get married. Outside their wedding limousine there are demonstration groups from three sides: the Serbs, the Croats and the Yugoslavs, which mark the uncertainty foreshadowing their future. Soon afterwards, Toma is drafted. After a while, Ana and her parents have to vacate the house. As the war intensifies, buildings are bombarded, neighbours are shot dead, and eventually, so are Ana's parents. The ones who are alive have no food to last. The town of Vukovar has become a smoking ruins. The heavily pregnant Ana, along with her friend, are brutalised by a mob...when Toma finally returns to Ana, it is too late...

'Vukovar poste restante' genuinely depicts the war that took place in ex-Yugoslavia in the early 1990s and as one reviewer said, the film's portrayal is realistic.

Asked Ana's friend: 'Will your baby be a Serb? A Croat? Or a Yugoslav?'
