In this intense drama set two decades after the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, a group of veterans gathers at a remote mountain hotel for an extended therapy session. Slovenian psychiatrist Ivan wants to help the men—Bosnians, Croats and Serbs—push past the trauma of the atrocities they experienced and, in some cases, perpetrated. But he is ill-prepared for the volatility of the situation, particularly when illicit alcohol fans the flames of the past. (Note courtesy Chicago Film Festival.)
