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.

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.
