Kanun

Participated in: MIDPOINT Series Launch 2022

Arion spent his whole life feeling flawed, struggling every day to prove his worthiness as an Albanian immigrant in Italy.

When he is dragged at gunpoint to his paternal uncle's funeral, and discovers that he is first in the succession line of the largest family of marijuana farmers in Albania, he tries to run away. But the head of the family, his grandfather Vesel, knows how to persuade him.

The old boss offers Arion the kind of redemption he’s been craving for a lifetime: a true sense of belonging; not to mention, the truth about his father's death. A war is coming, his family needs him, how can he abandon them?

As he fights to earn his place in this brutal world, Arion discovers his suppressed dark side.
