It is 1992 in Priština. Yugoslavia is falling apart, with war raging in Croatia and threatening to spread to Bosnia. Serbian dictator Slobodan Milošević is strengthening his stranglehold on Kosovo’s autonomy, Albanians are losing their jobs and educational institutions in their own language, and the movement for independence is gaining momentum. Full-on war is still years away, but it is time to take sides: Who is the true Albanian patriot and who is a Serbian spy? Fadil, an archivist, finds himself in a difficult situation: All of Fadil’s Albanian co-workers have quit, including his cousin, but Fadil is afraid for his family’s livelihood and stays on the job. The decision ostracizes Fadil from the Albanian community, and the repercussions soon spread to his entire family.
