Bosnian filmmaker Dizdar came to London to make this film, which is largely about relocated Bosnians. Several stories intersect from time to time as important issues are tackled, usually in a (very dark) comedic manner. For example, a heroin addict falls asleep on a pallet at an airport and awakens on a battlefield in Bosnia. His heroin helps during a surgery and he returns home a hero.
