Kanun is a centuries-old code of revenge and honor in Albania and dictates the lives of many people. Thousands can no longer leave their houses because they are too scared of the men seeking revenge. They risk death as soon as they step over the threshold. Others flee their homes. They are the hunted and don?t know when that fatal bullet will hit them. The sons are also potential targets, such as 14-year-old Christian. Twelve years ago his father and his uncle committed a murder. Since then Christian has been hiding in a room that's become his prison. The Kanun code is relentless.
