In a small psychiatric ward situated in
a former monastery and lost somewhere in the mountains in
the Balkans, six patients and a very young doctor are left
to their fate in the winter.
At the fatal moment UN planes heading from Bosnia, having
lost their way in a winter storm during the night, drop humanitarian
aid by mistake. The parcels contain food and military uniforms
for clothes. Dresses up as "Blue helmets" they become
a real military unit...
