The Night Burns
Born and raised in a small town, Max doesn’t study or work. With the help of his friends, Antonio and Hamza, Max takes pleasure in stealing jewellery and valuable objects that they could then resell to unscrupulous jewellery stores. The days pass in a repetition of petty thefts and meetings with a pusher from whom they buy all kinds of drugs, until the unexpected happens.
