The Border Post (Serbo-Croatian: Karaula) is a comedy-drama produced in international cooperation between the countries of the former Yugoslavia and directed by Rajko Grlić. It was released in 2006.


A JNA military border post on the Yugoslav-Albanian border in the late 1980s is thrown into disarray when its commander discovers he has syphilis. He is told by one of his men, a doctor, that treatment will take three weeks. In order to create an excuse for not going home to his wife and revealing his infidelity, the commander invents a stand-off with Albania, and orders a combat alert lockdown, prohibiting anyone, including himself, from leaving. The ordinary soldiers serving their compulsory military service there must cope with problems of their own.
