Movie Info

17-year-old Sasha and his family have emigrated from the Pontian area of the former Soviet Union to seek their fortune in Greece, only to find themselves despised as "Albanian." With few prospects, he and his fellow immigrant buddies resort to a lifestyle of petty crime, tomfoolery and prostitution. Sasha soon becomes the smoldering center of this gang of Pontian Greek kids who live on the margins of Athens. Sickened of the rent-boy existence, Sasha accepts an older pimp's offer to chaperone a beautiful Russian hooker, but when he inevitably falls in love with her, he must face the potentially dangerous consequences.more
