The Kingdom of Serbia, as part of the Balkan League, battling the remaining Turkish occupiers during the First Balkan War in 1912 and outbreak of World War I in 1914 and the crucial Battle of Cer, the first allied victory in World War I. The village is deeply divided between able-bodied men that are potential army recruits and the many disabled veterans from the previous Balkan wars; there is bitter animosity between the two groups, who do not intermingle much with each other even though they live in the same village.

The movie is not near as good as you might think reading nice reviews. I watched it, and i must say it was so slow, that i had to speed it up a little in some parts. The story about a love triangle between 2 soldiers and a lady is not really convincing, characters are more like puppets tied in their stereotypical roles without real space to develop. The one is always mysteriously silent, and stubborn, and that's all he is, and nothing else. Other is, deeply loving, honest, old fashioned man, and nothing more than that. It is hard to bring much more with such limited space. There is also a lot of theatrical, unrealistic dialogs and uber-macho scenes. Looks a little bit like a FIrst world war fairy tale, or it was planned to be that way but had stuck on the way in the swamp of boredom. It is bad very much in the way as Charleston for Ognjenka.
