Rosa, a young woman from small country-town Australia, longing for mystery, adventure and the exotic, is fatally attracted to a romantic image of Eastern Europe, arriving alone in Dubrovnik in the months before the implosion of the old Yugoslavia. Rosa has no idea of the politics, yet she ends up dangerously drawn into a relationship with a young Albanian on his path to becoming a political refugee. Unable to tease apart destiny, reality and fantasy, she becomes a captive of her heart and the excitement and danger of the unknown.
