The Albanian
Filmfest 2010

A one-way trip to the lowlands of the European dream. Where it’s dark. Where nobody cares. Where exile, loneliness and money prevail. This is the story of Arben, "The Albanian", who leaves Europe's poorest country for the richest. He needs money to marry and obey the rules of his people. But Eldorado has its own rules, it does not welcome strangers and only the strongest survive. THE ALBANIAN is one of them, he will pay the price and learn that losing his innocence does not guarantee a fair return ticket.
