Plot of the film:

Jakob goes to Bosnia as a volounteer in the UN troops, but becomes very disappointed by the limited opportunities to stop the killing of civilians. One day a superior officer talks him into sneaking off to take three rich foreigners for a tour in the area, but it turns out that what's waiting is not a Sunday picnic. In an orgy of blood thirst the three visitors, without reason, attack a Serbian village and Jacob is forced to take part in the bloody massacre. His naive faith in the good is lost.
