Trap, The

Post-Milosevic Belgrade, capital of a nation struggling to find its soul, of a country whose tur­bulent recent past has left many in a moral and existential desert. This is the home of Mladen, his wife Marija and their son Nemanja. When Nemanja develops a serious heart condition, the doctors urge an operation abroad but where to obtain the 26,000 euros? Just when the boy’s parents give up hope of raising the money, a man contacts Mladen and offers to pay the whole amount. But there is one thing Mladen must do: to kill the man’s business rival. The proposal repulses Mladen but as his son’s condition suddenly deteriorates, he begins seriously to con­sider the offer. If he accepts, he saves his boy’s life but loses his soul; if he refuses, he will grieve as a righteous man until the end of his life. The trap is set...
