Does Anyone Have A Plan? reflects the concerns and hopes of seventeen ordinary people from Kosovo, Serbia and neighbouring countries in the run-up to crucial talks over the final status of Kosovo. Their questions about the talks – which hope to find a solution to the conflict between Serbia and the Kosovo Albanians and stabilize the region as a whole – are put to important local and international political figures. The latter include EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, senior US state department official Nicholas Burns, Serbian president Boris Tadic and Kosovo premier Bajram Kosumi. Kosovo is the last unresolved dispute in the Balkans, with the Kosovo Albanians wanting independence and Serbia prepared to concede no more than a high degree of autonomy.

Produced by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, BIRN, and directed by the award-winning film maker Lode Desmet, this 85-minute documentary focuses on the dilemmas facing 17 ordinary people from Kosovo, Serbia and neighbouring countries in the run-up to final status negotiations.

During the film they put their most burning questions to - and receive answers from - a range of leading local and international political figures, including the European Union's foreign policy chief, Javier Solana, a senior US State Department official, Nicholas Burns, Serbia's President, Boris Tadic, Kosovo's Prime Minister, Bajram Kosumi and many others.
