Soon,MoreWhen Terry Hill and his family move to Zagreb, communism is history.Croatia is independent and hoping for better days.All might have gone well, had General Pantoliæ and other members of the new “aristocracy” not plundered the nation’s wealth. Soon, Croatia’s promising, democratic future looks as disheartening as the past. Applying for EU membership simply makes matters worse.Luka Tadiæ copes by exploiting the system. His brother seeks revenge. The British ex-pats fight culture shock and Jana Filipoviæ succumbs to threats.Loosely based on fact, Dust and Diamonds gives Croatian transition a truly human face.
