This story about friendship takes place in the streets of the Hamburg neighbourhood of Altona. Gabriel, who is of Turkish descent, has just been released from prison. He meets up with his best friends and partners in crime, Bobby, who is Serbian, and Costa, who is Greek. Gabriel has no intention of getting mixed up with trouble, so he begins to work with the family taxi. However, friendship and love are stronger and they inevitably drag him into a situation he had meant to avoid. In this, Fatih Akin’s first feature length film, the filmmaker addresses human relationships with a steady hand and unflinching emotion.
