Ivan, a professional drone pilot, is operating the plane from a remote air force base an has never been to the foreign countries of his attacks, nor has he ever touched the plane he uses to kill. However, after he accidentally bombs a school during the mission, this disconnectedness starts to apply to everything in his life. He is unable to get the men he killed out of his head and from there on the story melts down to become a road movie of the subconscious.
