October 1990, the communist regime in Albania is trying to hold on to power. A European delegation comes to Tirana to monitor the government’s implementation of reforms. In a remote area of the country, a political prisoner is transferred overnight without knowing where or why. The car transporting him breaks down deep in the mountains. The prisoner gets acquainted with his two guards, officials devoted to the Albanian Communist Party. Their personal stories intertwine and tensions burst, just like the history of a country in turmoil.
