Synopsis Ilir is a politician with pertinacious greed for power and wealth and is unscrupulous in achieving his pragmatist intentions. Yet, seemingly, he is a charismatic and charming man who is always able to get hold of whatever surrounds him in his life. His wife, Edlira, frazzled with his indifferent attitude, is seeking strength to divorce him. Petrit, a prosecutor and family?s best friend, considers Ilir an example of success in life. However, Ilir has a weak point: Neri, his partner and a ?good fella? who has acquired wealth in illegitimate ways, is chased by the police. In fact, Ilir is the true target. His son, Alban, a music composition student, is quite the contrary of his father. He is an unfailing idealist, living with his unique dream of composing a modern symphony, but he does not have the money to realize it. His father does not even think of providing for this dream. Alban and Fabiola, a young girl studying to become actress, are too stubborn to accept they have fallen in love with one another... In her utter despair, Fabiola falls in Ilir?s arms, but she quickly understands that she has been captured in a cage, which is next to impossible to break. A girl with a strong character, she will make use of Alban by establishing a relationship with him in order to set herself free from his father. In the meantime, she will breed hatred for his father in her boyfriend... While the circle is getting smaller on Ilir, Neri has caught on the trap that Ilir has made through Petrit, the prosecutor. Thus, as a sagacious and experienced gangster, he exerts a pull on both of them to his swirl and transforms Petrit to an assassin as the latter has a weak character and cannot put up with such an event... Altin, the police chief, has espied everything... In these conditions, Ilir sees no other choice but to cut a deal with the police chief to whack his own partner, Neri. Yet, his son will become the unexpected obstacle to this attempt, as he has only one goal: fight against his greedy father.
