The action takes place in 1943 and today, and a Partisan school in Srem is in the center of action. A young journalist gets appointed to shoot a film report about the participants in the Liberation War from this area. In Srem village she meets common, simple people. She discovers that a free territory and a Partisan school was there. She also finds out that everybody acted as one. Deply going through all of those events, young reporter grows mature, identifying herself with the revolution participants.
This is a very unusual Yugoslav WW2 movie, taking place in a village in Vojvodina (northern Serbia). The dialog was written by poet Miroslav Antić, and many of the actors you won't often see in a movie, being members of the Serbian National Theater troop from Novi Sad.
Most of the movie shows us everyday life, both during and after the war. The characters are ordinary people, not heroes, but however those who suffered greatly. This is probably exactly the reason why the scenes of killing and torture are sheer horror.
I believe that one of the points is that people who didn't experience anything like that will never be able to understand completely those who did. The victims are very reluctant and unwilling to remember and talk about these things.
