Title Card: 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.

Title Card: 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.

Title Card: 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.

Title Card: This film is based on actual events that took place in 1992 and 1993.

Jacket: You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to make a concert here in Sarajevo.

Jane Carson: Is that such a good idea?

Jacket: I will defy death in the name of art.

Jane Carson: Yeah, but what about the audience?

Jacket: The audience? They will die happily listening to me. But, I'm not going to do it yet, because you know, Sarajevo is only 14th worst place on earth. So, I am going to wait until we are number one.

Risto Bavic: Which place is the worst?

Jacket: L.A., of course.

Risto Bavic: I used to think my life and the siege were different things, and now I realize there's no life in Sarajevo apart from the siege. The siege *is* Sarajevo. If you're not part of it, you're dreaming, you are asleep.
