In 1943, group of Croatian soldiers overtake a strategically important point in western Bosnia with a goal to destroy a group of communist partisans. On the way they met some supernatural phenomena, and the action itself went very badly because the partisans ambushed them.

He is one of six soldiers of the Croatian army who have come to the same place in Bosnia to meet the same phenomena and similar fate.Written by
