    • Synopsis
    • For the beautiful young Bulgarian Jenya, her trip to Amsterdam turns out to be the opposite of what she hoped for. Her gruelling captivity makes the angel-like African Yaya fight for her freedom; a dangerous fight in which he loses everything but his beloved faith. The Serbian war criminal Ivica, who has just become a father, is painfully confronted with the fact that crimes will never go unpunished. Bosnian Seka has nothing left to live for but her vengeance but as it turns out, it's that same vengeance that brings love back in her life. And when the Swedish piano-wonderboy Lukas runs away from his new temporary home, his father Stig finally realises that their passion for music hurts their father and son relationship.
