Storyline

Bloody images from Ex-Yugoslavia on the classic war theme of a son who has to leave his mother and his family home to go to war. One day, the son returns, in a tank, with orders to meaninglessly destroy his own village. He hesitates and for a brief moment the war stops before the tanks continue their deadly assault.
