In a near future, new conflicts are blazing up in a secluded valley. Divided into 'chosen' and 'undesirable' ones, people leave their homes, fleeing from violence into uncertainty. Ika, Matija and their two children, Kaja and Nikola, are deeply divided over whether to leave or stay. Since the disappearance of their third child, Ika and Matija have not found a way to overcome the trauma and the rift between them grows bigger with each day. With its mystical revelations, the dawn sets in motion a series of events which make it clear that ignoring extremism and avoiding to face one's personal traumas always take a heavy toll.
