Luna and Amar, orphans of the Bosnian conflict, share a happy and loving relationship. They are trying to leave the painful past behind and they hope to start a family. Amar, an air traffic controller, has an alcohol problem: one day he is caught drinking at work and gets suspended from his job. Everything changes when Amar meets an old war buddy by chance: his friend is now a strict but contented Muslim. At first, Amar resists his friend’s offer of spiritual advice, but he changes his view after hearing a sermon in a mosque. Amar’s newfound faith will tear his relationship with Luna apart.
