After being sent to juvenile detention, 18-year-old Andrei must fight for his place amongst the group of young inmates. While getting closer to Željko , their unofficial leader, Andrei struggles to keep a secret he’s buried deep. Little does he realize that Željko has been harboring the same secret. At a juvenile detention centre, it’s best to keep your secrets close to your chest otherwise, someone else may exploit them.
Brace yourselves for a powerful, extremely bold drama featuring mesmerizing performances by Matej Zemljic as Andrei and Timon Sturbej as Željko.
