    In a near-future dystopia, citizens are rising against their increasingly oppressive nationalist government. Kuba, a twenty-year-old member of an illegal opposition group, gets arrested during a street protest. Despite his clear political involvement, he receives a lighter treatment than he expects. As it becomes apparent that there is a personal dimension to his rebellion, he has to make a choice that will determine the shape of his future.
