Synopsis

Escaping War is a journey into the lives of two individuals faced with death and destruction during
wartime. In 1948, Doksa was expelled from her village in Aegean Macedonia during the Greek Civil
War. In 1992, Serge found himself trapped between the fighting during the Siege of Sarajevo. This is
not a historical or political documentary, but a milestone in storytelling composed of the true
accounts from those who were directly and deeply affected. This is Escaping War.
