Gemma visits Sarajevo with her son, Pietro. 16 years earlier, they escaped the war-torn city while Diego, the boy’s father, remained behind and later died. As she tries to repair her difficult relationship with Pietro, she also confronts her past.
Gemma first met and fell in love with Diego in Sarajevo. They desperately wanted children but she could not conceive. Amidst the siege of 1992, they found a possible surrogate, and Gemma pushed her into Diego’s arms, only to be overwhelmed by guilt and jealousy.
Now, a revelation awaits her – one that will force her to face the full extent of her loss, the true horror of war and the redemptive power of love.
