It is set in Krsko, a small industrial town near the southern Slovenian border with Croatia known for its paper mill, speedway courses, high unemployment and as home to the country's only nuclear power plant. The story revolves around embittered, widower Ludvik (Peter Musevski) who is a former national speedway champion, but now makes a lucrative living trafficking van loads of illegal immigrants across the Italian border. Among those fleeing are Kurds, Albanians, Macedonians, and many from the former Soviet Union, Pakistan and Afghanistan - all dreaming of a better future in the West. To get there, they are willing to do anything, even if it means sacrificing a kidney or other organ, or their personal dignity. One day Ludvik's boss sends him the young and inexperienced Rudi (Aljosa Kovacic) to work as his apprentice on the road. Ludvik is skeptical about his ability to handle his new job and challenges him to the most ruthless acts. The first time, Rudi is confronted by a serious moral dilemma but as time goes by he too hardens to the reality that the people they are moving are essentially dispensable - they are spare parts.
