Alexander, an old writer, is ill and prepared to die. He says his goodbyes and recalls his life with his wife long ago. While driving his car he saves a street kid, an illegal immigrant from Albania, from being arrested. Later in the day, by chance, he sees the same boy being abducted, and follows in his car.

    I know that you had trouble with the site before… and I want to thank you for giving to all of us the opportunity to watch this film with english subtitles. I couldn’t find it anywhere with them.
