Description: A coming-of-age story about a mentally disturbed youth works his way up through the Kazak underworld. Fifteen-year-old Mustafa, nicknamed Schizo, is hired by his mother's boyfriend to find fighters for illegal fistfights. His life is changed forever when a young man mortally beaten in one of the fights asks Schizo to deliver his prize money to his girlfriend and young son. Schizo takes the money to the woman as promised, and falls in love with her, as he blossoms while in the toxic soil of a devastated country.
