Synopsis

Troubled Andrej has reached the end of adolescence and of his parents’ patience. He is summoned before a court judge for his anger, violence, and deceit. Sentenced, with the approval of his exasperated parents, to attend a youth detention centre, the handsome and muscular teen is thrown into the correctional facility’s intimidating and testosterone-fuelled hierarchy. Standing strong against its violent initiations, Andrej finds his anchor of approval and companionship in Željko, the aggressive leader of the centre’s gang, which he soon joins in a carefree spiral of sex, drugs, and violence. Yet Andrej’s tough posturing belies an intimate fragility. Revealing this would unravel everything around him.
