Daniel cruises Marek in a Paris railway station where Marek hangs out with his gang of Eastern Bloc thugs. Daniel suggests that Marek come to visit him in his apartment the following day. When Daniel opens his apartment door a day later, he is far from imagining the trap into which he is about to fall, which will turn his life upside down. The drastically different circumstances of the two men’s lives reveal hidden facets of the city they share. Eastern Boys is centered around relationships that defy easy categorization, in which motivations and desires are poorly understood, even by those to whom they belong.
