Lucas and Clementine live peacefully in their isolated country house, but one night they wake up to strange noise... they're not alone... and a group of hooded assailants begin to terrorize them throughout the night.
In 1996, in the Balkans, the population of a small town is slaughtered by a militia under the command of the inhuman Goran that abducts young girls for prostitution in a brothel owned by the cruel Viktor. The deaf Angel that witnessed the execution of her mother has a weird birth mark on the face and Viktor chooses her to housework; to put makeup and drug the girls for the clients; and cleaning them up after the brutal encounters. Angel also sneaks between the walls and ventilation ducts during the night. Angel befriends the girl Vanya that knows the language of the deaf. When Goran returns to the house with his men, Angel witnesses one of them raping and killing Vanya and she revenges her new friend killing the man. Now Goran and his men are hunting her down and she is trapped in the house.Written by

Later in the film, when Dimitri attempts to strangle Angel with his belt, she stabs him with a syringe loaded with heroin. He almost immediately reels back, loses coordination, and begins vomiting. The first issue with this is the method of injection. For heroin (or any drug) to have a near-immediate effect when injected, it must be intravenously (IV) injected, i.e., directly into a blood vein. With Angel jabbing the needle randomly into his leg like she does, the chances of hitting a vein directly or hitting and not going through are slim; more likely, the needle will pierce muscle tissue and be injected intramuscularly (IM), a method which will result in a much longer and milder onset of effects.
Also, assuming the dose Angel draws into the needle is comparable to what she normally gives the girls, it likely would not effect a large man the same way it would the smaller girls; specifically, Dimitri probably would not have experienced vomiting and coordination loss to the point where he couldn't stand straight. However, it might also be assumed that the girls have been there a while and have developed a tolerance for the drug, resulting in a larger dose being necessary. If this were the case, the dose might be enough to affect Dimitri in such a manner, assuming he doesn't use heroin on a regular basis himself. See more »
One day... one day things will be different. We can go away from this place. This is why I do all of this. So we can be together.

It's a nice cat-mouse revenge film with some tough scenes!
With the Balkans war as setting this film begins very strong, mostly on the emotional side. In fact the initial scenes describing the terror of war crimes against unprotected and desperate people (mostly women and children) are brutal and tough (but very well done!). However, it's just the context to what is in fact a revenge film and a cat-mouse game. And if here the sides seem to be very disparate (strong military men against one single mute girl ) you know you should never despise your adversary and his weapons for little and inoffensive they might seem It's a nice film that shows us the cruelty and sadism of wartimes! I score it 7/10.
