Alexandra is an elderly woman who has come to see her beloved grandson, a young officer stationed at a remote military outpost. Beneath a scorching sun, with the enemy laying in wait beyond the compound, she wanders the barracks--acquainting herself with the routines of military life, the boyish soldiers protecting her homeland--before making a mysterious trip into the outlying countryside.
