Description:

TOM (16), an easygoing boy without a proper education or a job ends up in a hospital with a Chechen man ARTUR (45), after accidentally saving his life in a car bomb explosion in downtown Tallinn. Artur is a mysterious man with an obviously harsh background, and the local detective RAIN firmly believes that he belongs to the Chechen mafia. A kind of friendship and mutual dependance evolves between these two totally different men, Tom and Artur. Both of them are like lonely wolves in their own way – two burning souls with absolutely different backgrounds, both tied together with an invisible bond of mutual destiny. Little by little Tom finds out that real life out there seems to have very little to do with his fantasies about action heros and mafia killers. In this world violence and hatred are not only words – they are real things, like the war, in which Artur tragically lost his family. Revenge, hatred, demise – a chain of tragic events, which evolves from each other. Tom has to decide if he wants to be part of that chain.
