Oleg leaves his home in Latvia, his work visa acquired for a job as a butcher in a Belgian slaughterhouse. When Oleg is blamed for a workplace accident, he is left unemployed in an unfamiliar country. Faced with an uncertain future, Oleg meets Andrzej, a friendly, larger-than-life Polish wideboy, who offers Oleg a job and a place to stay. But soon it becomes apparent that Oleg’s future may not be so bright. The second feature from Juris Kursietis (Modris), Oleg is a stark, yet pacy look at a dangerous situation which is all too common in Europe today. SE
