The Load


Vlada works as a truck driver during the NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999. Tasked with transporting a mysterious load from Kosovo to Belgrade, he drives through unfamiliar territory, surrounded by different expressions of war. When his job is over, Vlada needs to return home and face the consequences of his actions. A stark look on the baggage of contemporary history and the role of banality of evil in recent war crimes, featuring an amazing protagonist walking the line from defense to guilt and back.
