During a hot Melbourne summer Jovan's cleaning work at a bayside hospital is disrupted by acts of graffiti and violence becoming increasingly malevolent. For Jovan the mysterious words that must be cleaned away dislodge the poetry of the past. He and his wife Suzana were forced to flee Sarajevo and the death of their children

After losing everything and fleeing war-torn Sarajevo, Jovan and Suzana fight to start anew in Melbourne, but face tremendous pressures at work where Jovan must deal with the suspicion that he’s being targeted by violent and racially charged vandals
