The beginning of the 90s: the Yugoslavian Wars had started. Young men from all over Europe were taking part in them. On January 7th 1992, a Swiss journalist was found dead in Croatia wearing the uniform of an international mercenary group. Twenty years later, his cousin, the director Anja Kofmel, researches the background to understand, why these men are so fascinated by war.
