Synopsis:

The Health Insurance Fund of The Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina values its principles of mutual support and solidarity which secure fairness in distribution of funds for compulsory health insurance. Still, we witness frequent charity drives with citizens collecting money for the treatment of their family members in the streets. Why do citizens pay health insurance if, after being diagnosed with a severe disease, why they have to collect money for treatment in charity drives? Why doesn't the FBiH Government fulfill its legal obligation and pay money into the Solidarity Fund? What do citizens who fulfill their legal obligation get in return? Does the rebalancing of the FBiH Budget mean a death sentence for the ill? The documentary LIFE IN THE CHARITY BOX searches for answers to such questions.
