David, an adopted boy from Africa, lives in a well-off part of town, where there is neither poverty nor contact with immigrants. After his father dies, his grades at school deteriorate and he has to switch to a local school with a bad reputation. After a while, he feels attracted to this new world and begins to question his previous life and his family, but is then confronted with prejudice and cultural moralization. When he then falls in love with his Turkish friend‘s sister, things get out of control.
