It was all just a good dream tells the story of Frenchman Jean-Michel Nicolier, a volunteer in the defense of Croatia executed by Serbian troops in Vukovar in 1991. The documentary explores the events from the beginning of the Independence War in Croatia when the young Frenchman Jean-Michel Nicolier comes to Croatia. We follow his fighting in the heart of the tragic battle of Vukovar and the agony and torture that he suffered at Ovčara. His story is presented through the eyes of his mother Lyliane Fournier. We see her searching for any piece of information, which could help uncover the mortal remains of her son.
