Bosnia and Herzegovina during 1993 at the time of the heaviest fighting between the two warring sides. Two soldiers from opposing sides in the conflict, Nino and Ciki, become trapped in no man's land, whilst a third soldier becomes a living booby trap.


The performance is the first theatrical version on Bulgarian stage of the renowned film of the same name of the Bosnian director and screenwriter Danis Tanovic who won an Academy Award, Golden Globe, Best Script at Cannes Festival and other awards in 2001.
During the war in former Yugoslavia in early 1990s three soldiers are caught in a trench in the “no man’s land” between the enemy lines. One of them is lying on a land mine. They confront each other as enemies, but it turns out that they are very close, sharing memories, stories and friendships. The differences between them seem less and less substantial and the conflict seems more and more ridiculous. A realistic and captivating account of war that echoes the question of when human relations fall victim to social conflicts and whether this can be overcome.
