OVERVIEW

Brief Synopsis

15-year-old Igor and his father Roger run a hostel for illegal immigrants. Peddling illicit labor in the outlying districts of Liege, Belgium, their lives are ruled by scams, lies and swindling. But when an African worker dies on the job, Igor's childhood innocence comes to an end, and he is forced to decide between keeping a promise he made to the dying man, and the betrayal of his morally bankrupt father.
