More than 20 years after war left Bosnia scarred by violence and destruction, much of the generation born in the wake of that conflict has known little but struggle. Desperate and angry about their situation, many young men lash out violently and seek solace in drugs and alcohol. Post-war Machismo: Be a Man follows the journey of one Bosnian teen, Dragan, who turned his life around through the Be a Man club. An initiative aimed at teens living in post-war Balkan nations, Be a Man coaches young men to separate manhood and masculinity from violence, and find productive alternatives to anger and apathy.
