A young man runs away to Prague to escape mundane village life but quickly finds that the city and its seedy inhabitants are not always kind. Out of money, the boy catches the attention of a pimp who leads him into the city's underbelly where he must sell the only thing left to him, his body. Grodecki's film explores the unfortunate realities of the sex industry, bringing a dramatized culmination of his previous documentaries on the exploitation and dangers of the male underage sex industry of central Europe.
