The movie tells the story of Frenchman Jean-Michel Nicolier, a volunteer in the defence of Croatia executed by Serbian troops in Vukovar in 1991. Shocking, intimate and moving documentary examines the events from the time of the war in Croatia and the arrival of the young French volunteer Jean-Michel Nicolier in Croatia. We follow his fighting in the hearth of the tragic battle of Vukovar and the agony and torture that he suffered at Ovcara. His story is presented through the eyes of his mother Lyliane Fournier. We see her searching for any piece of information which could help to find the mortal remains of her son.
