In 1991, on the road between Osijek and Tenja, Josip Reihl Kir, chief of the Osijek police, a man dedicated to negotiations and avoiding war, was killed. This is the story of the peacemaker we are all looking forward to.

The story of the last few months of the life of Josip Reihl Kir, chief of police of the Osijek-Baranja police department, in the spring and summer of 1991, at the dawn of the bloody Croatian-Serbian war that Kir tried with all his might to prevent, is told through the statements of a dozen witnesses of the time and archival materials from that era.
