Beyond the boundaries of the town of Gost, Croatia, an old house which has lain empty for years is showing signs of life: Laura and her teenage children have arrived. As Duro Kolak, a local handyman, helps with repairs to the old house, they uncover a mosaic beneath the ruined plaster and painstakingly restore it. But Gost is not all it seems; conflicts long past still suppurate beneath the scars.
