Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Zrinko Ogresta directs this gritty action film about the days of the 1990s war between Serbia and Croatia. Rugged ex-boxer Crni (Josip Kusan) leaves the front just in time to see his ex-girlfriend get hitched to the local crime kingpin, Boss (Slaven Knezovic). Later, Crni smuggles cigarettes, gets framed for murder, escapes, and becomes a renowned war hero. By the end of the film, Crni leads a revolt against Boss, who has made a killing during the war and has bought a factory.
