Synopsis

Nicolas, twenty, is the eldest son of a rich family ruled over by his redoubtable businesswoman of a mother. Escaping from this background, he spends his days in the nearby town where he cleans windows and washes dishes. His friends are delinquents, homeless kids, the local riff-raff of the district he frequents. Life is tough but fun until, one night, he joins his mates in a riskier-than-usual caper and ends up in prison. When he gets out he returns to his old haunts to find nothing is the same, all the familiar faces are gone. So he goes back home…

Subject

Where is the truth?

In wine (said the Romans).

What do you know? (asked Alcibiades)

I know for certain only that I know nothing (replied Socrates).

Saying much (said Otar) is not the same as saying something – because of that not much is said in our films.
