In a country ravaged by civil war: a man from one side of the conflict gets caught in a storm and is forced to take shelter in the home of an old soldier who fought for the other side. This man's only choice: pretend to be from the same side of the conflict as his Host. Will his will to survive be enough to make him sacrifice his values and beliefs?
