The story takes place during the civil war in Bosnia. It follows Marko, a middle-aged peasant, who decides to plow his land at the disputed border on the day a peace agreement is announced. While scattered and "friendly" gunfire echoes from both sides, Marko's simple human action brings a moment of harmony to a land torn apart by the madness of this war...
