Inhalt

The Albanian


A one-way trip to the dark side of the European dream. Where no one looks. Where no one cares. Where exile, loneliness and money prevail. This is the story of Arben, the Albanian, who leaves the poorest country of Europe for the richest. He needs money to marry and obey the rules of his people. But the eldorado has its own rules, it is not welcoming to strangers and only the strongest survive. The Albanian is one of them, and he will pay the price. And learn that losing his innocence does not guarantee a fair return ticket.
