    • Synopsis
    • Two brothers who've lost all contact are suddenly brought together when they have opposite roles in
      a racist beating: while Georgi who's recently joined a Neo-Nazi group participates in the violence, Itso
      witnesses and rescues the Turkish family.
      Georgi, now being asked to participate in larger events, starts to question his implication in the
      movement and Itso wonders if the beautiful Turkish girl he saved could be his ticket out from his
      sad life in Sofia. Only by reuniting will the two brothers be able to assess what they really want from life.
