And right now, like all acne-riddled boys his age, his obsession is girls! In fact, he has a major crush on Oceane, the prettiest girl in his class, and would do just about anything to seduce her.In the building across the way lives Mohawk, his best friend, a crafty kid he’s known since kindergarten, with whom he likes commentating police operations from the comfort of their windows. There’s also Machine Gun’s cousin, Isma, a funny and proud kid who spends his days on rooftops, being a lookout for local drug dealers, trying to be like Tony Montana. And his brother Djibril, 22, the family’s pride and joy, a brilliant law student who dreams of the good life and has a troubled relationship with his girlfriend Lola, a white upper-middle class girl.But the day Isma tries to set up a coke deal between his bosses and a rival gang, all their lives suddenly spin out of control…Between violence and good-natured humor, an energetic, funny and moving film that casts a realistic yet tender look at the lives of teens in rough neighborhoods.
