A woman runs out of petrol on a deserted road after dark. Ivo, a man in his sixties with a gloomy past, comes to help. Josip, who works at a petrol station nearby, calls the police when he sees the two together. Krešo is one of the policemen who answers his call. Despite having to deal with a difficult family situation, he leaves the house to check what is going on. How is this night going to end?

This psychological drama explores the consequences of the past, Ivo’s stigma and a community forever marked by the horrors of war. Ivo Gregureviæ plays the main character with subtle intensity - his Ivo could just as well be a decent person, but retains an air of danger for the viewer, just as he does for the other characters in the film.
