A film in three parts: Hell; Purgatory; Paradise. Hell: Images of war. Aeroplanes, tanks, battleships, explosions, gunfire, executions, populations in flight, devastated countryside, destroyed villages. Purgatory: Contemporary Sarajevo, martyred like many others. Real and imaginary characters. Paradise: a young woman - whom we saw in Purgatory - self-sacrificed, finds peace by the water, on a small beach guarded by US marines.
