Wise-orphaned Jace, a Greek-Albanian child, witnesses a massacre that wipes out his foster family, and then falls into the hands of the predators, ruthless gangsters who ‘export’ children abroad for various reasons, from beggary to the organ trade. Jace ends up in Athens, begging at street corners, exploring the horrors of institutions for young offenders or serving obscure patrons in a world where violent loss seems to be his only destiny. The movie follows Jace’s inverted odyssey in a dark universe of abuse, murder and fear, as he desperately seeks a ‘family’ and a sense of belonging.
