Asja, a 40-year-old single woman living in Sarajevo, is looking for love. Trying out intensive methods to meet new people and encouraged by her mother, she joins a speed dating event, where she is matched with Zoran, a 43-year-old banker. But despite their seemingly successful pairing, their haunting past returns to prove that the two of them were once found on opposite battlefields and that Zoran is in search of redemption rather than a romantic affair.
