Mohammed is 18. He fled the war in Palestina to Germany and is searching for direction in a world of men. There’s the gruff boss of the motorcycle shop where he works, a colleague who tells him about his experiences with the foreign legion, and his charismatic and psychotic older brother. Without their parents, they live in a run-down apartment in Berlin. Airplanes are always flying by overhead. Between precarious work and the hope for an education, between heroic stories of camaraderie and one’s own memories of war, between the increasingly mind-blowing delirium and advice of his brother, the question arises: what does it really mean to be a man?
