Modern day Macedonia. Lazar is a hare, acting as lure to the police during the transportation of illegal immigrants to Europe. Intelligent and discreet, he is the protégé of the local godfather and provides for his family with the money he makes. He falls in love with a young student, a stranger to his world.
