Biljana Plavšić, the former President of the Republic of Srpska, was indicted by the ICTY for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. After pleading guilty and statement of repentance, the prosecutors dropped genocide charges against her, and sentenced her to only 11 years. She was released earlier. Pleading guilty, her reputation of prominent scientist and the fact that she was a women, are considered the reasons for such a light sentence. During her stay in prison in 2005, she published a voluminous memoirs in which she denied her previous confession.
As a main element of the performance, the artist will use ICTY trial transcripts, the memoirs of Biljana Plavšić, her statements to the media, and other relevant materials.

Biljana Plavšić, bivša predsjednica Republike Srpske, optužena je od strane ICTY-a  za genocid, zločine protiv čovječnosti i ratne zločine.  Nakon priznanja krivice i pokajničke izjave, odbačene su tužbe za genocid i osuđena je na samo 11 godina zatvora, te puštena ranije.  Osim priznanja, njena reputacija prominentne naučnice, te činjenica da je žena, smatraju se razlozima za tako blagu kaznu. Tokom boravka u zatvoru 2005. objavila je obimne memoare u kojima je negirala svoje priznanje.
Kao glavnim elementom performansa, umjetnica će se služiti tekstom prepiski sa suđenja, memoarima Biljane Plavšić, njenim izjavama za medije i drugim relevantnim materijalima.
