A stranger, Tasya, arrives in Sarajevo and barges into Damir's reclusive world. Little by little she takes over his apartment, his life, even his dreams. He can't summon the courage to confront Tasya and she becomes progressively more comfortable and controlling. Can Damir find it in himself to struggle out of this trap and regain control of his life, or will Tasya take him over completely, leaving no trace of Damir in the world?
