The Blacks

War. A city under siege. The truce has recently been signed, and the squad known as the “Blacks”, who used to do the dirty jobs, needs to be disbanded. Ivo, the squad commander who has lost three of his soldiers, prepares the mission to retrieve their dead bodies from the forest and, despite the ceasefire, blow up the dam, thus causing great damage to the enemy. The surviving members of the squad, tormented by their personal doubts and guilt, move into action. On the battlefield, they find that the enemy they are searching for is in the place they least expect – inside themselves.
