Rocky, a mafia patron and despot, runs a relentless regime somewhere in the outskirts of Vienna. His teenage nephew Pepe hands over his begged earnings to him every day. When young Marcela travels from the town they both come from in eastern Slovakia to Vienna to work off the debts her father has with Rocky, a love story begins to play out between her and Pepe. However, impeded by family pressures and Rocky’s vested interest in Marcela, the two are granted only a few carefree moments.
