After his family is killed by criminals, Jace flees to a circus and is introduced to the world of sex show business... Based on true stories, this is thrilling and unpredictable Greek entertainment!


Twice-orphaned Jace, a Greek-Albanian child, witnesses a massacre that wipes out his foster family, then falls into the hands of the predators, ruthless gangsters who 'export' children abroad for various reasons, from beggary to the organ trade. Jace ends up in Athens, begging at street corners, exploring the horrors of institutions for young offenders or serving obscure patrons in a world where violent loss seems to be his only destiny. The movie follows Jace's inverted odyssey in a dark universe of abuse, murder and fear, as he desperately seeks a 'family' and a sense of belonging.
