Feature Films, Latvia 2012, 90 Min.

Jan is a Russian in his mid-twenties. He lives with his grandfather in a dismal high-rise housing estate on the outskirts of Riga. He spends most of his time hanging out with his friend Cracker, smoking weed and earning a living with petty theft. When he witnesses a school friend being brutally beaten to death, he wants to change his life - especially when he meets Sabina and falls head over heels in love with her. Sabina comes from a wealthy background and turns Jan existence topsy-turvy. He acquires a taste for the comfortable, secure life that Sabina shows him, and becomes intent on climbing the social ladder - against all the odds ... Aik Karapetian's directing debut was shown at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival. Raw, fast-paced, hand-held camera images convey a haunting atmosphere of a “high-rise slab jungle” in which everyone must hold their own against everyone else.
