Edmond and Saimir are father and son immigrants recently arrived in Italy from Albania. To support himself and fifteen-year-old Saimir, Edmond continues to use the one trade he is familiar with – illegal trafficking of immigrants from Eastern Europe. Saimir finds it difficult to relate to his Italian peers, while the girl he is in love with seems almost afraid of him. When he discovers his father has become involved in an underage prostitution racket, Saimir reacts violently and sets out on a voyage of personal redemption.
