This time, in the capital city of Armenia, it will have a chance to compete for jury's attention as well as the main award and for the first time it will be confronted with the taste of the audience from different part of the world.
The main protagonist of the film, Piotr, is a former member of Warsaw mafia, who after being released from prison, decides to try and change himself for the better. We watch the protagonist, who takes his first steps into normal society, struggling with his weaknesses but at the same time glorifying his gangster past.
