Milena is a middle-aged wife and mother ensconced comfortably behind a gate in an
upscale suburb of Belgrade. She quietly tends to her looks, dutifully cooks and entertains,
and meets her friends for choir practice. She makes love with her husband and they
socialize jauntily with a group of old friends. But unsettling realities are beginning to
seep into Milena's consciousness and disrupt her ordered world. One day while cleaning,
she happens upon a videotape that incriminates her husband in horrific war crimes.
