Whose is this song is a film about a song and the transformations it underwent on its travels along the roads of the Balkans: in different countries, it has different faces and exists as a love song, a military march meant to scare the enemy off, a Muslim religious song, a revolutionary song, an anthem of the right nationalists, etc. Could a song change people's destinies? Could a song bring lovers together and then arouse blind jealousy? Could a song haunt a person for his whole life and even beyond? Could a song give rise to ethnic hatred or to revenge by hanging?
