Bosnia, 11 years after the 1992-95 war. STATEMENT 710399 shows a country scarred by the legacy of war crimes, where the perpetrators enjoy impunity and privileged positions while the victims struggle to come to terms with their experiences. The filmmaker follows a father trying to trace the last days of his teenaged son who disappeared during their attempt to escape the genocide at Srebrenica. The statement of the title, given by his son to Bosnian Serb police, which came to light during investigations for a War Crimes Tribunal prosecution, proves he was alive a week after the massacre.

REFIK HODZIC was born in Prijedor, Bosnia-Herzegovina, in 1972. He has followed a career in journalism working in television and radio. In 1998 he joined the United Nations, working as a spokesperson for missions in Bosnia and East Timor before joining the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) where he served for four years as Outreach Coordinator for Bosnia-Herzegovina. In 2005 he joined the War Crimes Chamber of the Court of Bosnia-Herzegovina as head of Public Information and Outreach. He is a founder of XY Films, an independent film production company in Sarajevo specializing in documentary films and television programs on war crimes committed during the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia.
