Mare is painfully aware that her marriage with Janko is falling to pieces. Her husband, feeling frustrated by his inability to mend their relationship, lashes out and hits her. This final blow gives Mare the courage to leave him, and to take their young son with her. While Janko slowly realizes the error of his ways, Mare and her son find comfort in the company of Krešo, a lonely security guard.
