A small, picturesque, mountainous country is controlled by highly placed criminals, people linked to politics, the mafia and also the police, judges and big business.

A teenage drug addict disappears from a resocialization centre – nobody misses her. She wants to tell the police about being forced into sex and drug taking, but they send her away. She finds a journalist, who starts to unravel an incredible web of crime, gangsters and extortion.

A talented politician becomes prime minister and controls the whole country, because those in power also control the police and government contracts. A small-time black marketeer becomes a major blackmailer who uses people like pawns on a chessboard.

But can truth prevail among people who only care for money and power? Or does God turn a  blind eye to murder and greed?
