When a woman living in a small village receives a parcel stamped ‘return to sender’, she becomes tangled in a torturous odyssey into the darkest heart of Russia.

The parcel is a care package she sent to her husband, a man locked in a fortress-like prison in the depths of Serbia. When no one will explain why the parcel was returned, she takes on the arduous journey by bus, train and taxi to find answers. Braving violence and humiliation, her quest becomes a hellish trip through a society stripped of humanity.
