Synopsis_

"A journey into the conflict zones that are currently shaking our world"

An inquisitive look at the identity and evolution of those who seek solutions to armed crises in the 21st century. In the background of some of the most intrenched conflicts on the planet, we see the conflicts through the eyes of the negotiators and learn of their challenges and their personal sacrifices as they try to resolve conflicts in the most difficult of circumstances.
Using some of the world's most entrenched conflicts as a backdrop, we revisit their stories and discover, through the eyes of the negotiators, their work, their assessment of the situation and also the personal cost to them of trying to resolve conflicts in the most difficult circumstances.
Four stories of negotiation with their protagonists in Colombia, Norway, Bosnia and Herzegovina and South Sudan.
Negotiation is an inherent part of our lives. We all have to negotiate for everything, all the time. It is something we carry in our DNA as human beings.
