“Snow does not fall to cover the hill, but for every beast to leave it’s trail.” Twelve women, one old man and young boy live in war ravaged and isolated village Slav no. Their families and friends from Slav no had been killed and their bodies were never found. The first snow brings full isolation and risk for life in the village. It gets closer as villagers headed by Alma, a young stubborn woman who believes they can survive, tries to find their way out of poverty by selling plums and vegetables on the road. A delegation visits Slav no demanding residents to leave the village offering money in return. Villagers face a dilemma: should they accept the offer that could save their lives, but destroy their souls. A sudden snowstorm traps the delegation in Slav no, forcing them to face a problem bigger than anything they expected – the truth!
