A middle-aged couple matched at a blind-dating event in Sarajevo discover that although the battles besieging their city are over, the war continues in many other forms.

Encouraged by her mother, she reluctantly attends a blind-dating event in her hometown, where she is matched with a 46-year-old banker named Zoran despite his intense stare, comes off as shy.
