Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
The brutal war between the Serbs and Croats which broke out as soon as Yugoslavia was freed from Communist rule is the subject of this harrowing drama. In the story, a Serbian man and a Croatian woman are being married. Though this was once a commonplace occurrence, today the post-wedding celebrations are interrupted by violent demonstrations of conflict between the two groups. The woman's husband goes off to serve in the Serbian army, never to be seen again, and she is brutally dealt with by Serbian soldiers, while the beautiful multiethnic region of Vukovar is similarly ravaged by the ongoing war.
