In a juvenile detention facility in Tiblisi every-one is burdened by debt. Nika took the rap for his brother and now keeps his fellow inmates in line. A telephone call promises a gangster career, if he can get the fellow inmates in position for a prison riot. When the facility starts rugby practice, a team spirit begins to grow among the adolescents and the plans for revolt fade into the background.
