Review
Set during the Balkan war of the 1990s, and based on true events, this tells the story of Samira, a young woman from Sarajevo whose life is shattered the day a young soldier walks into her apartment and tells her to pack her things. Rounded up with the other women from the village and imprisoned in a warehouse in a remote region of Bosnia, Samira’s nightmare spirals when she is chosen to ‘entertain’ the soldiers, but it is this horror that also provides her with a final act of courage. Juanita Wilson's drama is based on Croatian writer Slavenka Drakulic's real life experiences overseeing the proceedings of the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague.
