Gabriel is a 15-year-old teen, who wants to become a priest, and is thereby admitted to an Orthodox college. Trying to fit in at first, he finally realizes the system is totally corrupt and abusive. Along with three other classmates, the four teens are labelled as rebel students by the school board. Caught in the fight for power between an incorruptible but abusive priest and a cunning, crooked, and unscrupulous secular teacher, the students learn that lying, stealing, cheating, gambling, and betraying are things they have to master in order to survive in the seminary. ~ Sofia International Film Festival
