For 25 years Mityo has lived with the burden of a terrible secret – as a soldier on the Bulgarian border, he was forced to kill a young couple from the German Democratic Republic (GDR) that tried to escape to the West – from Bulgaria to Turkey. Nowadays, Mityo is on the border again, but this time he is smuggling illegal immigrants in the opposite direction – from Turkey into Bulgaria and the EU. He has lost everything that matters to him – his wife, his work, and the confidence of his son, Vasko. In order to get Vasko back, Mityo has to find forgiveness and pay for his sin.
