Anja Kofmel already admired her cousin Chris as a little girl. His mysterious death in the midst of the wars in Yugoslavia in 1992 still keeps her occupied. Especially as the young Swiss journalist wore the uniform of an international mercenary group at the time of his death. What happened?
As an adult, Anja decides to follow his story. She tries to understand what Chris’ actual involvement in this conflict was and takes us on a quest to Croatia. She tells of her journey in a fine mix of documentary and animated film. Meanwhile the film already won several awards.
