Experiencing Interruptions?

The Kingdom

In the lush, rolling hills of Kosovo vineyards, Fatmir, a pampered son of a successful vineyard owner, hopes to catch his rising star and make a name for himself. He takes a risk and sponsors a smooth-talking artist who has the potential to become internationally famous.

But when Fatmir is swindled and loses everything, he ends up friendless, penniless and alone in a foreign country. Haunted by the condemning words of his older brother that he is a failure, Fatmir is determined to prove him wrong. Yet things go from bad to worse. Destitute and hungry, rejected and without hope, will Fatmir find the courage and strength to return home?
