The Serbian artist Damir Todorović wants to confront his past, hooked up to a lie detector. Did certain things really happen, or are they just the product of his imagination?

In January 1993 Damir Todorović was sent as a soldier to the war in Bosnia. Is it possible to figure out what really happened there by using a polygraph? The lie detector measures Damir's reactions to the questions he is asked by Vladimir Aleksic, relating to the diary Damir wrote during the war.

As It Is examines the categories of true and false as important social issues, especially in European transition countries facing identity crises. It is about acting in everyday life, truth and fiction, authenticity and totalitarianism.

It is a performance that provokes the questions: Can we live without lies? If so, is this desirable?
