SYNOPSIS
Flight attendend LUNA and air-traffic controller AMAR live a truly loving nearly perfect life in Sarajewo. They feel ready to have a child for quite a while, but this wish remains unfulfilled so far. One day Amar is suspended from work for sipping booze while on duty. Luna is worried but trying to support him during the therapy, which is imposed on him by order and helping him to find a new interim job. By chance they meet Bahrija, an old war buddy of Amar's, who is now a devout but contended Muslim. He gives Amar a new job in a religous camp, set up by ultraconservative Wahhabis. While Amar's attitude changes along with the influence and the beliefs of his new confraternity, Luna witnesses drastic changes in their relationship. To what extend her love to Amar will carry them on?
