Retired smuggler Pamfir returns to his home in Western Ukraine, determined to earn an honest living to support his family, but his plans for a life without crime are compromised when his son sets fire to the local church.

In Detail

Part drama, part thriller, the story follows Pamfir as he returns to his family after a long absence, ready to celebrate the traditional carnival in their home village the following day.

But when his son starts a fire in the prayer house, Pamfir has no other choice but to reconnect with his troubled past. He returns to work for a shady crime syndicate operating a risky smuggling venture, with irreversible consequences.
