Plot
You go out in the yard. On a bench, you find some prisoners talking about how they will break the law without being caught. On other benches, prisoners talk about drugs and Kalashnikovs. And suddenly, you see a big Lithuanian guy with some other inmates of the same proportions playing chess...” as a music teacher, held in the Special Youth Detention Centre in Avlona, Greece, narrates. Is there really a second chance in real life? A young man from Lithuania finds himself prisoner in a youth detention center, in a foreign and unknown country to him, where he doesn't even speak the language. He'll either stay in his cell and give up everything or he'll find a way to redefine his life. He may try to learn Greek in the prison's school, discover his hidden talents and study at the Technical University one day. Will he succeed? For three years, he struggles to fulfil these unattainable goals, as the camera records his anguish to start his life from scratch.
