Plot Summary: Desperate to escape their dismal lives in the city, Alex plans a robbery at a bank in the countryside. In a cascading set of events, the slam-dunk theft at the faraway bank goes awry. Alex is forced to hide out at his grandfather's farm as the plot takes a tortuous and unexpected turn. With meticulous, elegant direction, Spielmann creates a tense, existential, and surprising portrait of vengeance and redemption.
