A female Bonnie & Clyde in Hamburg: two young girls fight for their love and break away from their previous lives. Yara and Kiki belong to rival gangs in the Hamburg quarter of Wilhelmsburg. When the two girls fall in love, they have to keep it absolutely secret – their gangs and above all Yara’s Albanian family mustn’t know. But soon a phone video turns up on the Internet that gives the secret relationship away. Yara and Kiki go all in. They rob a kiosk, steal a car and go on the run – pursued by the police and Yara’s father.
