Eduart, a young man raised in a cruel and oppressive family environment, leaves Albania with the dream of becoming a rock star and live a better life. His reckless character lead him to commit a murder in Athens. When he returns to Albania, he is imprisoned because of an old robbery and undergoes the harshest conditions.

Can Eduart be redeemed? The film is based on true events.
