Do not mention the cause of death

War film

Jovan Zivanovic

Short description:
The war in Serbia brings death - mass shootings by the occupier. The dyer wants to help his people in sorrow and in pain, wants to supply it with black mourning. But there is not enough blackness for all the deaths, because Death works faster than dyer. Načve dyer, whose wife gets raped, believes in "honest" intentions of his godfather - a black marketeer, and distributes the linen, purchased from the occupier, to the people. But, the people in it's grief, can not distinguish good from bad intentions. The vast hatred and pain overcomes it's cause - the Germans.The dyer gets stoned and loses his son, remaining pure and innocent.
