Following Sinapi’s celebrated debut, “Nationale 7”, this is a tale of second-generation outsiders. Paul (Sami Bouajila) and his younger brother, Daniel (Jalil Lespert), of Moroccan descent, were born and raised in France. Despite a good education, Paul can only find work delivering pizzas. He relieves his frustrations in the boxing ring. Secretly, he is also writing a book, and has a relationship with Myriam (Sylvie Testud). Daniel seeks recognition as a bodybuilder, but an overdose of anabolic steroids puts him in a hospital in Hamburg. Sinapi artistically moves between Hamburg and France as the brothers search for the meaning of life.
