A gypsy couple struggle to grieve the loss of the child they conceived during an affair.
Eva lives as an outsider within the gypsy community, stranded between the sporadic affections of her workaholic husband Yuri, and the lustful intent of gypsy leader, Davro. Whilst Yuri is out one day, Eva and Davro sleep together. When Eva discovers she is pregnant, Davro takes lethal action to keep scandal under wraps, by tasking Yuri with a dangerous job at the quarry. The community mourns Yuri’s death, and Davro steps in as provider for Eva. The couple prepare for the birth of the baby, but as the due date approaches, Eva wakes one night with heavy bleeding.
