Plot
Early morning. A bus is carrying seven soldiers to an unknown destination. Among them is 20-year-old Dzoni, a recent recruit who has trouble fitting in. They arrive at an abandoned farm in the middle of a field. Disturbed by the mystery surrounding their mission, Dzoni attempts to find out what is expected of them, but to no avail. The long wait begins, beneath a scorching sun. A bus arrives, carrying a group of frightened men. The unit commander explains that these prisoners are the enemy.

About the film
by Dina Iordanova
Perhaps the most impressive recent film from the region, this almost silent, slow moving, and seemingly dull story chronicles one day in the life of soldiers whose work is killing people all day long while staring at the blue sky and smoking cigarettes in the breaks in-between work. It is mid summer, and groups or men are brought in and executed in groups of five or six, shot at the back of the head on the premises of what appears to be a disused vacation camp. The victims are passive, there are no interactions between prisoners and executors, and only in one instance a captive shows signs of resistance. Another one attempts to initiate something like an investigation into why he is here, hoping he may get out, and only gains an extra few minutes of hope – he is still executed along the others.
