When the war reaches the highest point, the American journalists are ordered to flee. They unsuccessfully try to persuade Emma to get out of Kosova, to leave with them. Emma is determined to stay. Upon returning to Prishtina, Emma finds the Serbian forces are ousting the population to refugee camps. Partly to punish her for her work as a journalist, the soldiers rape Emma. She becomes pregnant and gives birth to a baby girl, which she names Ana. When the war is over, there is nobody to help Emma. From a very loved person during the war, she becomes an unloved person, abandoned and forgotten by everyone. All relatives look upon Ana as a misbegotten child and they try to persuade Emma to abandoned her. A year later, the American journalist David, returns to Kosova and they fight together to get back the anathema daughter of Emma’s.
