Without scruples nor remorse, Joshua methodically kills men, women and children until the day he murders his partner Goran who wanted to kill a woman about to have a baby. Joshua helps Vera, who were raped by the Moslems of Bosnia, to give birth to her daughter and brings her back to her family. Vera's father drives her out of his house and Joshua proposes to the girl to drive her to a refugee camp in Split. The task of Joshua is complicated by the fact that Vera does not want to take care of her daughter. Joshua must now avoid the soldiers, Serbian as well as Moslems, who slaughter and plunder the villages that the couple must pass through. Vera's maternal love appears finally when the baby is threatened and she soon sacrifices herself in order to allow Joshua to save the baby. From now on all alone, Joshua takes a bus with the intention to drop off the child in a center of the Red Cross.
