The film tells the story of a Muslim woman and a Serbian man who have a fling before Bosnia’s 1992-95 war, only to meet again when the woman is the prisoner of a unit of the Bosnian Serb army commanded by her former lover. Though he is able to protect her at first, once he is transferred away, she suffers abuse and rape at the hands of the soldiers.

Bosnia’s 1992-95 war between its Croats, Muslims and Serbs claimed about 100,000 lives.

Tens of thousands of people were held in prison camps, where torture and abuse were commonplace. About 20,000 women were raped during the conflict, according to the government’s estimates.
