Deutschland 2006/2007, Spielfilm


Snipers Valley

Matlentan/Kosovo, just before the end of the war in 1999. It used to be that victims were the Albanians and offenders the Serbs; but now it is the other way around. Two young German soldiers, Tom and Charly are in an almost hopeless KFOR mission. They are supposed to keep peace. As a sniper strikes Matlentan, Charly is injured during his attempt to rescue the young beautiful Serbian Mirjana. Tom rushes after the killer, firmly resolved to shoot him, but finds himself facing a half-grown Albanian child, Durcan, holding a sharpshooter′s rifle in his hand.

Soon Durcan′s motive becomes clear: Mirjana′s father, Dr. Jovovic, was partly responsible for the Serbian massacre and also has Durcan′s family on his conscience. Above all, the Albanian military commander Enver wants his revenge on the Jovovic′s. With Mirjana′s help, Tom successfully wins the trust of traumatized Durcan. Tom and Mirjana fall in love, which puts the friendship with Charly to a difficult test. Durcan escapes and once again becomes involved with Enver. Mirjana is now confronted with a shocking truth: Enver has long decided to have her killed – and has commanded Durcan to execute the sentence.
