After years behind bars, three young men are released from prison. Among them is Alex, a captivating figure who charismatically addresses his past with a disturbingly blasé attitude toward violence, women, and guilt. Offering a rare peek into contemporary Roma culture, the three ex-cons try to reconcile the outside world with the gray-shaded areas of morality with which they struggle.
