69 min.DK/DocumentaryPortrait films

Nicknamed the Butcher of the Balkans, Slobodan Milosevic died of a heart attack on 11 March 2006. With exclusive access the director follows the key players in the specially-created UN tribunal. The key players are the principal trial attorney, the English barrister Geoffrey Nice, on one side, and on the other Milosevic' advisers. The crew has been behind-the-scenes from the beginning of the trial, in 2002. By following the players as the trial unfolds and recording history as it happens, the film gives a unique insight to the strategies and obstacles of the people involved, marking their conflicts and victories.

The trial, of four years, against Slobodan Milosevic was the longest war crimes trial before an international court, and the most important since Nuremberg.
