The trial of the chief perpetrator of the war crimes committed in Bosnia lasted five years. But proving his guilt of the genocide was much harder than it seemed.

The siege of Sarajevo, the murder of 7,000 Muslims in Srebrenica, ethnic cleansing... The events in Bosnia in the 1990s were Europe's bloodiest conflict since the Second World War. When in 2012 the Bosnian Serb commander stood before the tribunal in The Hague, a long and challenging journey for justice began. The documentary follows the five-year trial and looks behind the curtain at the whole story. In addition to describing the main crimes, it presents two points of view: the preparations of the prosecutors, the testimonies of the witnesses and the work of the investigators, and on the other hand the efforts of Mladić's lawyers, his supporters and family. Is it possible to achieve justice 20 years later?
