A train is stuck in a tunnel.
The shadows slowly become faces as daylight floods the wagon. NATHALIE sits near the window, in her business suit. After 20 years in France, she has become a true Parisienne. She and her boss VALÉRIE are on their way to Montenegro to solve a complex and unusual inheritance case.
The deceased, Sanja Djurdjevic, a spinster who was from the Balkans but lived in France, has bequeathed a large sum to the Orthodox Church in her hometown for the construction of a chapel in her name next to the cemetery where her body was repatriated.
Once on the ground, the more questions Nathalie asks about Miss Djurdjevic’s past and the delays in executing her will, the more Sanja’s brother challenges her past actions and present motives. Slowly, Nathalie finds herself confronted with the uncomfortable parallels between her life and that of the deceased.
The mask she has created for herself during all these years abroad begins to crack: the legal investigation becomes a personal interrogation.
The only way to resolve this dilemma is to revisit the small village where she was born and confront her past and the people she left behind: a sister who made the sacrifice to stay and take care of their parents, dealing with a country at war, while Nathalie was building up a new life abroad trying to have it all. Seeking reconciliation, Nathalie finally reconnects with herself, the self she tried so hard to erase.
