"Politics, money, religion, power. The forces and circumstances that lead men to war are many and varied. But the devastating human cost of war never changes. That's the stark and visceral truth that's communicated in this Steve Patterson drama, which reminds us of the terrible atrocities committed during the early 1990s war in Bosnia."

- Backstage West
