SYNOPSIS

The renowned medical expert in the fight against obesity, Rajko Dolecek, a still active nonagenarian, has a second public face. In the 1990s he became a vocal advocate of the “Serbian perspective” on the war in Bosnia and Kosovo. According to Dolecek, a Czech friend of General Ratko Mladic, a convicted war criminal, the genocide in Srebrenica didn’t happen and was invented by the Muslims and the West. Young filmmaker Kristýna Bartošová knows the truth, she has Bosnian roots. But she wants to understand the other side, too. She sets off to meet the aging professor and together they take a trip to the Balkans. What will the clash of completely different views on the bloody recent history reveal? This sometimes humorous film conceals a deeper question: Is nationalism impervious to rational argument? Does such a dialogue even make sense?
