Hanna is a shy woman who leads a boring life working for a factory. By chance, Hanna visits an oilrig for several days and cares for a man named Joseph who suffers from severe burns. There, she meets a cast of unusual characters including a cook, a soldier, an engineer, and an English couple. In order to understand the lives of these characters, Hanna first has to understand the events of the past. A difficult task, since no one wants to talk about them.
