A train passes slowly across the heart of Bosnia and Herzegovina: Sarajevo, Tuzla, Srebrenica, Konjic, Mostar. Women, religion, war, violence, and music are thrown on the screen like dice on a chessboard, or as Russian Roulette. Up for grabs is truth or lie, life or death. The camera explores what is behind the rediscovered order of things. How far can our gaze reach in order to know? A dance school, the hallways of the Islamic Pedagogy Faculty, a rock music classroom, the Medjugorjie hill… from all these places the characters carry out their research. How can we hold the executioners or the victims to account for that horror? War does not have a woman’s face. Nothing happened in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Nothing.
