Dejan Stanic was a general in the Balkan War. For ten years, he has been hiding from the UN war crimes tribunal in various military camps. Accomplices help him to switch from one secret location to the next. His latest hiding place is Slavko's house. Slavko is an old man who lives in a small mountain village. Dejan is suffering from the extreme isolation and flashbacks from his past. Wearily, he tries to accustom himself to his new surroundings. But the political situation has changed. Dejan is increasingly hunted in Serbia too. It's high time he acted. Brother Dejan is a contemplative drama, consisting of rigidly ordered tableaux and an aesthetic reminiscent of a documentary.
