I grew up in Hamburg and went through similar things shown in this movie and I can relate to it better than to any other movie I've ever seen!
This movie is a drama about the street life in Hamburg, about three friends making decisions that will change their life forever! One coming out of prison and trying to grow up and leave the criminal life behind him, while his two best friends don't let him, as they struggle themselves to find the right way in or out of the criminal lifestyle.
If you like movies such as Mean Streets and La Haine, or if you are just interested to see the other side of Germany, then this movie is for you!
