Summary
Two Serbian refugees, Jovan and Suzana, are desperately seeking redemption in Australia. The couple fled war-torn Sarajevo after losing their children, their standing as public intellectuals, and their connection to each other. Now working as cleaners in a suburb of Melbourne, they struggle to rebuild their lives under the painful hardships of immigrant life. During a hot summer, Jovan's janitorial work at a hospital is disrupted by mysterious acts of vandalism that become racially charged. As he cleans up after each one, he can't shake the feeling that he and Suzana have been personally targeted. Under tremendous pressure, the couple struggles to keep their marriage together, and fears they may never find peace from the ravages of war
