“In the dark of the night, is heard the Serbian notorious nationalistic song –‘Ko to kaže, ko to laže, Srbija je mala (Who says and lies that Serbia is small) …’-, then we hear some women scream, what in fact there were 4 women persecuted by some Serbian soldiers. Serbian soldiers were abusing these women, beat them up, stripped them, rape them, even in the presence of their children! It was the year 1999, when was war waged between Serbia and Kosovo. In this war, around 20 thousand women were raped by Serbian soldiers. In the play, there are four stories exclusively narrated to be performed on stage.
After they have been raped, abused, beaten, these women will narrate about their lives from after the war until today… “
