Synopsis: In early 1992, a little Swiss girl learns that her cousin was killed in Croatia. The cousin, a young Swiss journalist was involved in the civil war in former Yugoslavia. When his body was found, he was wearing the uniform of an international mercenary force. Years later his cousin Anja Kofmel decides to make a film about the background of this story using her skills as an animator, therefore combining real filmed documentary sequences with animation.

Anja Kofmel (1982, Lugano) attended the Rudolf Steiner School from 1988 to 2000, and graduated in Adliswil Sihlau in 2002, with a federal diploma. She had different jobs in Switzerland, London and Iceland, among them being a clerk in an engineering company and a trainer of young horses and trek leader across Iceland.
