Set in the Swiss Alps, the story begins at a Swiss motor-way service station. Boris, a Serbian desperate to get back to his country having fled the Balkan War a decade earlier, forces an Italian driver, Filippo, at gunpoint to drive him through Switzerland and over the Italian border. Not long into the journey Filippo manages to overpower Boris and discovers that in fact the gun was not loaded. Sensing Boris' desperation and taking pity on his plight, Filippo agrees to still take him over the border. As the two men continue to talk along the journey, Boris begins to seriously doubt his own motivations for returning to his homeland, forcing him to make a decision that will irreversibly shape his own destiny.
