Lazar, a silent and mysterious young man, earns his living in dirty business – smuggling illegal immigrants across the border. When his father left, he had to learn to be resourceful and tough, and now he’s stuck, but also seduced by this criminal world in which he’s extremely efficient. 

His world, however, begins to change when he falls in love with Katerina, an honest girl studying architecture and hoping for a better life for both of them. Lazar has to make a choice and decides to quit his criminal environment and start anew. However, he soon realises that it is no easy task to simply break away from the criminal world that he is part of.

Lazar, un jeune homme silencieux et mystérieux, fait du trafic d’êtres humains. Lorsque son père a abandonné sa famille, il a dû grandir vite pour devenir débrouillard et robuste. Maintenant il est coincé, mais aussi séduit, par ce monde de la criminalité qu’il connaît extrêmement bien. Il rencontre Katerina, une jeune étudiante honnête, qui aspire à une meilleure vie pour leur couple. Amoureux, il tente de s’extirper de son milieu criminel, mais c'est là que les difficultés commencent.
