    Dušan, a young deputy war crimes prosecutor, is given the task to investigate a paramilitary formation, the First Pioneer's unit, that was operating on the battlefields in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo, where they disappeared without a trace. Dušan is determined to bring the case to an end and to show his father, a famous retired professor at the faculty of law, but to his boss too, the war crimes prosecutor, that he is capable of doing this job. This becomes for Dušan much more than a simple case – it becomes a personal confrontation. We do not expect much of the investigation and by Dušan's associates it is condemned to failure, until he finds the unit's only surviving soldier, Mićun, who tried to live peacefully and quietly. Dušan and Mićun's encounter changes their lives and directly affects their families.

    Rooted in the still-raw horrors of recent history, Redemption Street turns a provincial story of post-war guilt and revenge into a glossy action thriller with potentially global appeal.

    Because Redemption Street is a rattling good thriller grounded in real, raw, human tragedy.

    We have a good topic and very emotional story, so I don't need too many formal elements. I would ruin [STITCHES] if I showed off all I know.
