In 1993, a naive Belgrade-based theater company embarks on an increasingly dangerous tour of the war-torn Krajina in this jet-black road movie. Tapping the sweet spot between comedy and tragedy, this treatise on war's chaos and humanity's foibles is accessible to audiences with little or no understanding of the conflict's factions.
