Milan who is seriously wounded, while lying in the hospital bed, remembers the ten day long hell that his platoon and himself had gone through, when they were trapped in a deserted tunnel. Simultaneously with the war scenes, nostalgic memories of  friendship with his muslim friend Halil, overflow him. Milan and Halih meet again during the war – one of them inside of  the tunnel, the other above it. The oath of eternal friendship had been broken and thrown into the mud of the Bosnian war.
