Plot – Spoilers:
Every job counts for a Georgian-French worker Sebastien whose miserable family depends on him and his hardworking, lame, elder brother. So when he gets an offer to repair the roof of a junkie, he’s as enthusiastic about it as his troubles allow him to be.
While working on the roof, he overhears the junkie vaguely talking about a high-paying opportunity that has come his way. The junkie dies shortly after and Sebastien chances upon an envelope containing a train ticket and hotel booking that point to the mystery job. When Sebastien is curtly informed that he won’t be getting paid for his work, he assumes the junkie’s identity and decides to take his chances going for the mystery job. However, on reaching the destination, he senses danger lurking of a type beyond his wildest expectations. But by then, it’s too late to turn around.
Pure dread. If that’s what you crave, 13 Tzameti is for you.
