A bright, intelligent teenager, KRISTO, sits at his desk in a classroom. On the chalkboard, the teacher has written an essay topic: ‘My Lake’. Kristo ponders the meaning of these words as he writes: “The lake can give you everything if you just know how to ask.” Kristo looks out the window and recalls the events of the past few months. Young Kristo lives in a village at the edge of gorgeous Lake Prespa, a body of water divided on the borders of three Balkan countries – Albania, Macedonia and Greece. In order to support his family, Kristo has become a small-time marijuana smuggler, using his boat and knowledge of the lake waters to transport drug packages from the Albanian to the Macedonian side.
The story ends as it began with Kristo completing his class essay on what the lake can bring to those who only know how to ask.
