A young Albanian immigrant hijacks an intercity bus outside Thessaloniki in northern Greece taking hostage seven of the passengers, seeking revenge for the injustices done to him. His demands include a large money ransom and safe passage back to his homeland. Over the next twenty hours a mad cap journey ensures through northern Greece and southern Albania. A journey which highlights contemporary Balkan prejudices and antagonisms and leads to a tragic and brutal end.
