27th October, 2021

After the successful series “Roots”, a sequel follows based on the novel by Dobrica Ćosić from the trilogy “Time of Evil” (“Believer”, “Sinner” and “Apostate”). The series brought together significant acting names. Just like in Roots, the creator is Goran Šušljik and the cast includes Nada Šargin, Goran Bogdan, Žarko Laušević, Nataša Ninković, Radovan Vujović, Goran Šušljik, Nebojša Dugalić, Isidora Simijonović, Pavle Mensur, Pavle Čemerikić and many others.

The series, produced by United Media, was filmed in Belgrade, but also in several locations throughout Serbia, such as Bilješka stena on Tara, Donja Kamenica near Knjaževac, on the slopes of Crni vrh, in a 136-year-old wickerwork house in Gornji Račnik near Jagodina.

We find the Katić family at the dawn of the Second World War, in Belgrade. Bogdan Dragović (Goran Bogdan) is returning from emigration, trying to re-establish ties with the Communist Party for the sake of his son Vladimir, from which he was expelled as a Trotskyist.

His wife Milena (Nada Šargin), who is practically abandoned, starts an emotional relationship with Petar Bajević (Goran Šušljik), an agent of the Comintern and Bogdan’s war friend.

Milena’s and Ivan’s father Vukašin Katić (Žarko Laušević) is a picture of civil Yugoslavia and its principles, which fails to resist the coming circumstances and ideologies. The World War II begins, Milena and her brother go to Prerovo, Vladimir joins the partisans, while Petar and Bogdan end up in the Gestapo at the same time.

The screenplay was written by Sanja Savić Milosavljević and the director is Ivan Živković.

The series has a total of 15 episodes.
