Plot
The year is 1914. The place is a village in Serbia on the bank of the river Sava, the natural border with the mighty Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The population of the village is divided between two radically opposed factions - the able-bodied potential army recruits and the disabled veterans from the previous two Balkan wars. There is bitter animosity between the two groups.
Soon, at the start of the First World War, the healthy population is mobilized. The veterans left behind in the village try to take advantage of the soldiers' wives and sisters. News about this reaches the Serbian soldiers in the trenches a few days before the expected enemy attack.
To prevent a mutiny, the Serbian High Command decides to take the disabled veterans to the front line and thus deal with the inconvenience.
These extraordinary events, based on a true story, create the backdrop for an ill-fated love triangle between a young disabled war veteran, a local policeman and his wife, that ends in a manner resembling an ancient Greek tragedy.  (From www.fcs.com)
The script is based on a 1984 theater play written by Dusan Kovacevic.
