Summary
After nearly half a century of communist rule, poverty stricken Albania falls subject to the invasion of two exploitive capitalists looking to prosper within the changing economy. As Albania's people try desperately to flee destitution, Gino and Fiore arrive from Italy with plans to use a makeshift manufacturing plant to front their next scam. Forced to name an Albanian as their company's acting "chairman", the two turn to Spiro - a prisoner of war for over fifty years - who emerges as the perfect pawn. When Spiro disappears, Giro finds himself on a journey that will ultimately reshape the integrity of his soul
