The Tribe unfolds through the non-verbal acting and sign language from a cast of deaf, non-professional actors resulting in a unique, never-before-experienced cinematic event. Teenage Sergey, a new student at the boarding school, realizes immediately that he must prove himself worthy to be brought under the protective wing of the school gang’s leader to survive unscathed. After an indoctrination of harmless initiation pranks and rites, Sergey’s new-found clique soon introduces him to their common activities of robbery, bribery and prostitution. At first assimilating seamlessly into his new role in the tribe, he finds himself compromised as he begins to fall in love with his female classmate-and one of the gang’s escorts-triggering a sequence of stunningly diabolical events.
