For the few Serbs who remain in Kosovo after the NATO bombing of Kosovo in 2000, Gracanica Convent is an island of peace, guarded not only by the prayers of the nuns inside, but also by the NATO tanks that guard the convent walls. At the gateway between these two worlds is Sister Teodora, who with a joke and tear tries to balance her hostility to Albanians with her religious calling to love them.
