Martin, a Croatian war veteran, is in love and on a quest to find Desa. It just so happens that Desa is an ex-porn star, now hooker, living in despair and a drunken stupor after her husband, a Serbian army leader, has been killed by a sniper. Martin embarks on an adventure to Belgrade with her cinematic co-star (and happy family man), "The Wolf," to find her. Where they find her is living in a brothel under the control of a savvy conman of the local underworld. Desperate to have her at any cost, Martin buys Desa for 35,000 Euros and takes her back to Croatia. She keeps waiting for him to engage in the usual pimp behavior, a role she is accustomed to dealing with. But he treats her with only kindness. Their cohabitation slowly evolves from roommates to much more. However, as the relationship progresses, Martin dare not tell Desa that he knows her from before (during the war) or expose his dealings within the intrigue of the Croatian underworld. Desa finally uncovers a link that leads her to the intolerable and excruciating truth. The landscape has changed and neither Desa nor Martin is the person they were during those fateful days of their first encounter. What does the future hold for the two in WILL NOT STOP THERE?
