Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
Written and directed by Srdan Vuletic, Ljeto u Zlatnoj Dolini (Summer in the Golden Valley) follows Fikret (Haris Sijaric), a typically rebellious 16-year-old fond of roaming the streets of Sarajevo with his best friend. Tragedy strikes when his father dies and further complications arrive when a stranger claims Fikret's deceased parent owes him 25,000 dollars. Humiliated, it looks as if the family must sell their lives away to repay the dead. Aghast at the prospect, Fikret accepts an offer from a corrupt policeman (Svetozar Cvetkovic) to aide in the kidnap of a rich man's daughter. Though he agrees, his resolve melts away when he sets sight on the victim.
