The film’s central motif is the total solar eclipse of August 11, 1999. While the world celebrated, most of Serbia’s population barricaded themselves in their homes and nuclear bunkers, in fear of the lunar shadow. Using this event as a metaphor for the nation's unclean conscience about the consequences of its political choices, the director confronts her country’s wartime and criminal past, and the evil that is still on the loose today. The director dares to look in the mirror of a troubled present and reckon with the ghosts of a bloody past, arguing that historical amnesia is a burden carried across generations.
