A young lawyer living in the shadow of his law-professor father gets the chance to prove himself while researching his first important case. In this Serbian war crime investigation, Dušan (played by Gordan Kičić, who also produced Redemption Street), is a talented, though inexperienced, lawyer with a pregnant wife. A top-secret investigation into Serbia's war crimes commission falls into his lap. The focus of his mission is the men of a paramilitary unit, which operated on the 1990s battlefields in Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, and Kosovo and was responsible for several brutal massacres. Some of those soldiers have disappeared without a trace. Among Belgrade's ruined buildings, Dušan works from an empty decrepit apartment. The Chief Prosecutor (Rade Šerbedžija, Fugitive Pieces) supplies him with everything he needs: files, a car, and food. Dušan's dogged investigation quickly gets political, and personal, as he drives the guilty from their hidings places, and naively exposes himself and his family to danger. Exceptional acting, slick production value, and emotional tension serve in making this film a simmering thriller.
