UNTITLED LOVE STORY / Ljubavna priča bez naziva
This love story begins in 1992 in a small city in the eastern part of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Lejla and Danijel are a young couple in love, who get separated at the beginning of war activities. Danijel’s father is a stern high ranking officer of the Yugoslav People’s Army and appoints his son to the post of commander of a POW camp. Danijel’s moral principles don’t allow him to accept this position, but he unwillingly yields under his father’s pressure.

Danijel is in an unenviable situation and tries to find the best solution, acceptable for all. The question is whether such a solution even exists…
