Why are young men so fascinated by war? Today just as back in the nineties when war was raging in Ex-Yugoslavia? On January 7�� 1992, the young Swiss journalist “Chris” Christian Würtenberg was found dead in Croatia. Strangled with his scarf, still wearing the uniform of a platoon of international fighters. Twenty-five years later his cousin, director Anja Kofmel, researches Chris’ murder and tries to get to the bottom of these questions.
