Set in 1996, during the first Chechen war, at a psychiatric hospital near the border. Janna and her fellow inmates live unaware of coming events, until one morning when they find the medical staff vanished.

When a group of soldiers settles in the hospital, she falls in love with one of them, but in the end all she can do is play her accordion and pray for peace.
