Juanita Wilson directs this stark portrayal of a young woman's survival of the atrocities of the 1990s Bosnian War. Natasha Petrovic stars as Samira, a young Bosniak primary school teacher from modern Sarajevo who takes a job in a small country village just as the war is beginning to gain momentum. When Serbian soldiers take over the village, shooting all the men and forcing the women into hard labour or prostitution, Samira finds herself forced into a makeshift brothel where she is subjected to repeated rape and acts of violence.
