Yugoslavia, 1991. Somewhere near the Hungarian border, far away from the war zones and frontlines, Branka - a nurse from Sarajevo - gets a job at a maternity ward of a state hospital. The young woman is all alone, she is far away from her family stuck in the warzone. On her first day she meets Angéla who came to deliver her first baby without anyone accompanying her. Strong bonds form between the two of them in a short period of time. They recognize their own vulnerability in each other. However, it soon turns out that loneliness is not the hardest burden Branka has to carry. Newborn babies are mysteriously disappearing from the hospital.
