SynopsisSarajevo, May 1993: Surrounded by Serbian troops in the mountains, there is no escape the besieged city. No way in, no way out.The salvation: a secret underground passage beneath the airport, stretching for 800 meters, using muscle power only.Over the next few years the tunnel becomes lifeline of the city.
A constant stream of people crawl back and forth through the passage, bringing food stuffs, petrol, oil, medicines and above all weapons into the city. The tunnel saved the besieged city. Behind the restored facades, painful memories still smoulder. Held together by a fragile peace, the modern European metropolis of Sarajevo today still bears the omnipresent scars of the bloody civil war. The film relates the dramatic stories associated with the tunnel, before, during and after its construction.
