Costa, a Greek; Bobby, a Serb; Gabriel, a Turk: they used to be part of a neighborhood gang in Hamburg Altona. One for all, all for one. But much has changed since Gabriel went to prison. He has decided to grow up, but his buddies are holding him back. Bobby, in particular, still has dreams of joining the mafia. Only Alice, Bobby's girlfriend, understands Gabriel – better than she understands her boyfriend.
