A Muslim cellist and a Serbian student make a desperate attempt to hide their love long enough to escape from war-torn Bosnia before the truth about their sexuality is revealed and they are put to death. Serbian aggression in Sarajevo is escalating, and now, due to his faith, Kenan's life is in grave danger. Should he be questioned, Kenan will almost certainly be put to death. Now, in order to escape to freedom, Kenan will pose as a woman and take the role of Milan's wife. Should the ruse work, the couple may be able to make it to Holland. Yet while the villagers in Milan's hometown seem convinced that Kenan is indeed Milan's bride, the powers that be may not be persuaded so easily.
