Arnaut, the child of Serbian parents and raised in Germany, comes to the small village of Rujišnik in central Serbia in search of a place to hide for a while. Charming but unscrupulous Vesna offers him a job as a cemetery caretaker in a small, remote Serbian village. But he is soon plagued by nightmarish visions and receives increasingly frequent visits from the mysterious elderly Baba Draga who leads him into darkness. The village priest seems to be the only one who tries to protect him from the villagers, who are up to no good.
