Description: The true story of a bus hijacking in northern Greece provides the inspiration for this intense drama, which centers on the heated issue of contemporary Greek-Albanian relations. Through a series of flashbacks and heated interactions between the hijacker and his hostages, the director takes the audience on a harrowing trip -- not only through the Greek countryside, but also through the complicated reasoning behind the hijacker's desperate, extreme actions.
