Andrej is a troubled 17-year old who gets sent to a youth correctional facility for a misdemeanour he presumably didn't commit. His strict and demanding mother and distant father have never really understood him or offered much support so he soon tries to make this place his new home. He meets Željko, another inmate and the leader of the gang which actually runs things in the institution with his vicious and scheming ways. Andrej soon falls under his spell not only for the power and security that Željko's company provides but also for the unrecognized sexual attraction he feels towards him. He soon learns keeping his latent homosexuality under wraps is essential in a macho culture around him, but when Željko discovers his secret he soon starts extorting him for his own gain. After successfully pulling him into his life of crime and depravity, Željko asks Andrej to extort a considerable debt from his old »business partner« which would presumably allow them to run away to Amsterdam together. But when Andrej finds out this debt is significantly smaller and that Željko's ex-partner actually needs the money to take care for his sick child, he refuses to collect the debt which forces Željko to execute his plan and destroy Andrej's life.
