In the movie "Eastern Boys," the story begins with Muller, a discreet man in his late fifties, noticing a group of young Eastern European boys hanging around the Gare du Nord train station in Paris. These boys come from countries like Russia, Romania, and Chechnya, but their intentions and backgrounds remain uncertain.

Muller becomes particularly interested in one of the boys named Marek. In an act of courage, he approaches Marek one afternoon and strikes up a conversation. Surprisingly, Marek agrees to visit Muller at his place the following day.

However, when the doorbell rings on the agreed-upon day, Muller is completely unaware that he has fallen into a trap. Instead of finding Marek at the door, a gang of young Eastern European men forcefully enters his home. They overpower Muller, tie him up, and begin to ransack his house.

Among the intruders is Marek himself, who seems to have orchestrated this plan. It becomes evident that Marek is part of a criminal organization led by the charismatic and dangerous boss, Vassili. The gang's intention is to rob Muller and take advantage of his vulnerability.

As the story unfolds, a complex relationship develops between Muller and Marek. Muller's initial fear and anger towards Marek gradually morph into something more complex, blurring the lines between vulnerability, desire, and manipulation.

While the movie explores the power dynamics and exploitation within the context of prostitution and criminality, it also delves into the human connection between Muller and Marek. Their interaction and the ensuing events force both characters to confront their personal desires, fears, and moral boundaries.

Throughout the narrative, the film tackles themes of immigration, homosexuality, economic exploitation, and the search for identity and human connection. It presents a gritty and emotional portrayal of a relationship between two individuals from vastly different backgrounds, caught in a web of deception, crime, and desire.
