A solitary corner of the Jura Mountains. Zita, a young Croatian woman who has lost her home and family in the war of Ex-Yugoslavia, finds herself involved with a husband and wife whose marriage has come to an end. The girl's presence ends up causing a catastrophe and ZITA, with her lack of determination, is partly responsible.

"ZITA is a provacative character, simultaneouslly victim and executioner. At a certain point of the movie it is no longer clear who will be assasinated, guilt and suffering, responsibility and destiny become intermixed..." Christian Wagner
