Kazakhstan - 2020

Season 1 - 8x17' | International Premiere

In Russian with French & English subtitles
Ep. 1

Synopsis
When Aldiyar learns that he is being expelled from university, he gets a job as a drugs courier to earn money to be restored. However, the taste of easy money derails him from his goal and leads the young man into a downward spiral. Torn between work, lies, and debt, Aldiyar must somehow get out of this alive.

Note from the artistic direction
Sheker connects marvelously and with intelligence to the mood and absurd madness of the new Kazakh consumer society. In the end, it is an enticing, enchanting, atmospheric moral tale with great acting.
