synopsis

How could your neighbours turn into killers?

Twenty-five years after fleeing a brutal civil war in Bosnia, Damir Mitric returns to uncover the pain and trauma that still divides his homeland. Now a historian living in Australia, Mitric returns to Bosnia, reuniting with family and friends, and meeting those working to rebuild a nation borne of bitter ethnic and religious divisions.

From his childhood home in Europe’s most besieged city, to a former concentration camp and to mass graves, Mitric confronts the incomprehensible: How could your neighbours turn into killers? And how can you rebuild lives and communities devastated by violence?

fan quotes:

"We came away disturbed, but better educated and far more appreciative of our fortunate lives. Touched by the helplessness of the situation. The frustration. The futililty. The pain and suffering of so many - and all for what?
...an important story to be told".
- Doug Jarvis
