During the Bosnian War, Danijel, a soldier fighting for the Serbs, re-encounters Ajla, a Bosnian who's now a captive in his camp he oversees. Their once promising connection has become ambiguous as their motives have changed.
During the Bosnian War, the captive Bosnian Ajla is brought with other women to a Serbian barrack to serve the soldiers. The commander Danijel recognizes Ajla that he met in a night-club and wooed her and he discreetly protects her. They rekindle their love, but can they trust on each other?Written by

I haven't watched the whole movie yet (for me it wasn't that easy to do so at once) so I thought it would be helpful to check some reviews first. There are so many comments on Bosnian war and few information on the movie itself ( I didn't bother to read them all). Anyway, I actually found these comments funny and somewhat absurd at the same time. The fact that I'm reading "historical facts" about my country and a war was kind of confusing. At some points I wondered if it is Bosnia and Herzegovina people talked about. Too many facts about history, traditions and nationalities one should know to be able to comment that perspective of the movie. Watch the movie instead, from your point of view, as a human being, without choosing sides and if nothing else then bear this message in your minds: that war was as brutal and violent as it is shown but something like that could happen to anyone. You will always find some background historical story in each country that could cause that physical and emotional suffering we've been through.You should also understand that there are still some people out there forgotten by the rest of the world as we were in 90's. This is where I come to conclusion that from what I have seen so far Angie sent out the messages we've been served from movie industry for a long time, only choosing the different settings and unfortunately non-fictional story.
