  • Synopsis

    After a great success of TV series “Rift of a nation”, the story that tried to reveal the facts hidden for 70 years, about the beginning of the war in 1941, about actions that defined the destiny of our nation in past decades, and after great fuss created in public all over the ex YU region, Contrast Studios, in association with Serbian Broadcasting Corporation, commenced the second phase of the project – feature film “For King and Fatherland”, from the author Rados Bajic.

    “For King and Fatherland” tells a story of an old Serbian soldier Milisav Janjic, ex corporal, who fought against Germans in the World War II as a member of the movement of Chetniks, beside the general Dragoljub Draza Mihailovic. Combining masterly Milisav’s memories and reminiscences of the past and war, with present moments, the author narrates about German attack, April War and breakdown of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, about the tragedy that hit Serbian people, loss of freedom, beginning of Serbian movements of liberation and one Serbian soldier who returns to his fatherland after 70 years of emigration in USA.

    „Film „For King and Fatherland“ represents a particular personal lament over the period of World War II, and a kind of retraction from the theme I was into for the past five years”, explains the author Rados Bajic. 

    The film brings a very powerful antiwar, human massage. It is dedicated to all the patriots and compatriots, who fought for their fatherland in 1941, paying tribute to the best liberal traditions and aspirations of Serbian people during the World War II.
