A vivid portrait of a population striving to overcome isolation through dignity, work and faith. Gorazde, Bosnia, after the attack by Serbs in March 1992, was the refuge of many Bosnians fleeing ethnic cleansing. During 1,336 days over 50,000 Bosnians, locked in a square kilometre, resisted Serbian bombings and agression. The Dayton agreements in 1995 resulted in a country shared by Serbs and Bosnians, but Gorazde, located in the Serbian part, stayed Bosnian. Surrounded by Serbian territory and land mines, and only linked to Bosnia by a long and poor-quality road, Gorazde stands on its own, unfairly forgotten by its fellow countrymen. A historical document and a testimony of a population defending its dignity and rising from the ashes.
