Erlan is a student who left his family in the province and went to study in a big city. He arrived to the new city, full of temptations, in search of the big success and happiness like most young men do. The truth is that most young men of the today’s society define a person’s material success as happiness. Erlan is blinded by the rich life that most young men of his age are enjoying. He finds new friends. The so called “golden youth.” The more time Erlan spends with these people, the more his personality is changed. He makes a very specific deal with his new rich friend, Loko. The deal between two young men promises Erlan a ton of money for a pretty simple job. His job is to find a guy, who would get paid for going to jail for someone else…
