Adam is a successful Chechen artist. In his early childhood he fled with his mother to France before the war in Chechnya. In Europe, Adam received an excellent artistic education. His works increasingly attract the attention of art critics and his paintings sell successfully in Europe. One day Adam receives an unusual offer, one that could make him a millionaire.
