Storyline

The horrors of war are examined from the view points of lifelong friends, who end up on opposing sides in the war in Sarajevo. One is an expert marksman, who trains the snipers used to terrify the city and the other becomes a freedom fighter, who rejects his friend's offer to gain an escape from the city. As might be expected, the two eventually have to face-off against one another. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Shot through the Heart is a movie about two best friends who end up on different sides of a war. This movie goes through the horror and sadness of war and how it can tear even the best of friends apart. The sniping scenes give you an adrenaline rush. The anticipation is brutal. And on top of it all is the great acting. You will not be disappointed.
