The year is 1994 and the war in ex-Yugoslavia has been raging for three years. In Naples, a young actor called Leo has started rehearsals for a play he will stage in one of Sarajevo's small theatres, run by a director who was well-known before the war. Leo's troupe is working out of a small run-down theatre, which stands as a tiny fort in the middle of the Spanish quarter's swarming streets. The play is Aeschylus' "Seven Against Thebes", about a siege and a war of fratricide.
