Private Project

Fountain of the Wolves

Inspired by true events, Fountain of the Wolves tells the story of two men whose values and beliefs are tested by the government’s coercive agenda. Ardit Nushi works for the communist party of Albania and is ordered to bring in Kreshnik Shehu, a defiant writer considered a threat to the government, who happens to be his best friend. As the events unfold, Ardit must make a choice that appears to have no favourable outcome.
