Julianna Shala, a Kosovar Albanian, and her husband, Miroslav Cadikovski, a Kosovar Serb, pursue their love in a nation divided by ethnic strife and eventually full-scale war. For the couple, the 1999 war in Kosovo tests the limits of ethnic bonds and past loyalties.Inspired by Serb nationalists to seize Kosovo, the Yugoslavian Army, Special Police, and paramilitaries clash with the ever-swelling and committed defenders: the Kosovo Liberation Army. With tens of thousands of civilians homeless or exterminated and NATO's interdiction into the war on the side of the Kosovo Liberation Army, a vicious fight to the death ensues, and it's victor takes all.Here They Come weaves a tale of young love around the horrors of the Kosovo War and the heroism of those fighting it, including the NATO liaisons on the ground risking their lives for the mission who come to embrace their mission's ideals. Boots on the ground and hearts in the crossfire, Here They Come captures the human dimensions of war.
