Raja means "group of friends" in Sarajevo slang. The five friends in the film are all in their 20's and very attached to each other. They play music, go skiing, meet at cafees during the grenades and the fire of the snipers. One is an art student who alternates the Art Academy with the front line. Another is in Sweden as a refugee and sends "videoletters" to the friends. They would all like to escape from the trapped city.
