Nik Xhelilaj new albanian Shooting Star of "The Albanian"
In the backwood mountains of Albania which still heavily constrict the lives of young people and blood feuds are the norm. Handsome Arben a mountain villager is in love with Etleva, a fetching hay-pitching lass from a neighboring clan, and wants to marry her, but there is a big hitch. She has been offered to another suitor for a 10,000 Euro bride price. Moreover, Etleva is pregnant after a passionate roll in the hay with Arben, so if he wants to buy her out he better come up with some big cash quick or Etleva's brothers will take bloody revenge for his besmirching of their family honor. The only way to get money fast is by getting to Berlin via the danger laden immigrant smuggling trail. Arben struggles to survive in Germany without even knowing the language and finally, after much violence, secures the needed Bride Price cash but --it's too late, and this leads to bitter complications.
Alex, Deleon glad to be in Palm Springs, as the festival enters its final stages.
