    • Albania, present day. At the edge of a haunted swamp Juli, Nora and Ben work together in an isolated village where their families were exiled during the country’s intense communist rule. Under the disapproving eyes of Juli, Ben juggles an affair with Nora while dreaming of expanding his café into the Balkan big time. Their quiet world ceases to exist when a highway crew begins to widen the road nearby. Juli falls for engineer Mili but worries about her ailing and confused grandmother, Noje. As the new road approaches the village inhabitants have one last glorious night of fireworks and celebration.
      But when the dawn arrives Juli, Ben and Nora must face a shared secret from their traumatic past.
