The year is 1995. The city of Srebrenica falls to Serbian
forces. While women and children cling to uncertain security in the UN
protected area of Potocari, thousands of men escape into the woods. Within a
week, more than half of these Bosnian men will be executed.
Braco – the Bosnian word for little brother – follows
fourteen-year-old refugee Atif Stavic’s agonizing five-day journey through the
woods. His goal: the safe city to Tuzla. To get there,
Atif must navigate fifty kilometres of minefields, artillery
fire, and firing squads, then cross the heavily guarded road that stands
between him and his dream of sanctuary in the safe zone.
Braco plunges full force into the traumatic events of the
worst European conflict of our time and creates a testament to the power of
human perseverance in the face of chaos and cruelty
