The FilmDistrict release is a romance story set in the 1990s during the Bosnian conflict. The film marks the directorial debut for Jolie.

"We did it because we felt this is a war that isn't talked about enough," Jolie said in a recent interview with Christiane Amanpour. "I know it's a hard film to sit through, but it's two hours to sit through something that's very hard, and these people lived through it for many, many years, and it was many, many times worse than any reenactment could possibly be. And I feel like it's a gift and a duty to sit through two hours of what they lived through."
