Contents/Summary

Summary
Life proceeds at a gentle pace in Ahatovici, a picturesque village in the green hills outside Sarajevo. But Ahatovici was far from quiet in 1992 when, during the war in Yugoslavia, the village fell into Serbian hands. Almost all the men were taken prisoner and brutally murdered and the village was burnt to the ground. Only the women and children were spared. The film tells the story behind this forgotten genocide. The murdered men are commemorated in the stories of their wives, mothers and daughters, and through the few remaining photographs and personal belongings. A memory is attached to each object, but that someone was a good husband does not appear from a photograph, but from the way his wife, talking about him, caresses the picture and presses it against her chest. Through the enveloping grief, the film looks for the beauty of remembering and of love.
