Welcome to Sarajevo
Welcome to Sarajevo is a film shot in a style similar to a documentary, but is a fictional account of a news team reporting on the war in Bosnia. A well-respected veteran reporter risks his life day in and out to get the story to the cameras, but doesn't realize what he's getting into when he comes across an orphanage. Suddenly he is attracted to these children and their plight, and cannot do anything but report on the multiple angles of their terrible situation, including the inability of both countries and the UN to do anything about it. One little girl he finds a deep parental affection for, and even after getting most of the children out of the country, cannot let go. Eventually he smuggles her out of the warzone and the refugee camps because, despite his training and life as a reporter, he finds himself compelled to wrestle some humanity out of the whole ordeal.
