Bosnia, July 1995.

Aida is a translator for the UN in the small town of Srebrenica. When the Serbian army takes over the town, her family is among the thousands of citizens looking for shelter in the UN camp.

As an insider to the negotiations Aida has access to crucial information that she needs to interpret. What is on the horizon for her family and people–rescue or death? Which move should she take?

"There is relentless, dread-fueled suspense here, and a kind of procedural efficiency that reminds me of Paul Greengrass’s fact-based films, like BLOODY SUNDAY and UNITED 93." – A.O. Scott. A New York Times Critic's Pick!
