Roman returns to the land near the border with Ukraine he has just inherited from his grandfather. Fully decided to sell this vast but desolate property, he is warned by the local cop that his grandfather was a local crime lord and his men will not let go of the land - and their smuggling business - without a fight.

A contemporary western noir/crime drama set in a rural Romania where violence roams the plains. "Picture 'No Country for Old Men' as reimagined by the Romanian New Wave. 'Dogs' oozes tension." (Variety)
