Josip Papic, lost most everything in the Balkan conflict, including his wife. Belma is all he has left. He is mistrustful of her new friend Rasmus, the fifteen-year-old son of an antique shop owner. Before meeting Belma, Rasmus' sole occupation was playing computer war games and trying to earn money for a CD-ROM. For Josip, trouble comes in the form of an ex-prison guard and torturer who has also become a refugee. When the other newly-landed Bosnians learn of his arrival, they band together and nearly kill him. Unfortunately, Josip, who was not even there, is arrested for the crime.
