Sarajevos Roses tells a story of a young Austrian woman travelling to the former crisis area of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Getting an idea of life during war is the aim of her journey. During her search, she comes accross memory-worlds of survivors of the war in Sarajevo. The inhabitants of the city grant an insight in what life was like during the times of war and how they managed to deal with that situation. The filmmaker is looking for parallels between life during war and her own life in peace.
