Sarajevo, June 28, 2014. The manager of Hotel Europe is preparing a European Union Gala to mark one hundred years since the assassination of Franz Ferdinand – the shot that sparked WWI. The hotel staff, however, has not been paid in two months and plans to go on strike.

Since winning the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film for his breakthrough debut feature, No Man's Land (2001), esteemed Bosnian director, Danis Tanović, created five more films, including An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker (2013), which was awarded a long list of prizes. His most recent film, Death in Sarajevo, based on a screenplay by Bernard-Henri Lévy, was awarded the Grand Jury Prize and the FIPRESCI Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival last year.
