After a decade in prison for second-degree murder, hardened but broken 35-year-old Ertan is intent on making a new start by staying away from the criminal world, but nobody really believes him. Returning to the grim streets of Vienna, he seeks out his son Mikail, now a teenager and unaware that his father even exists. Mikail dreams of being a rapper, but has turned to drug dealing and stealing to get his career started. To try and save his son from the life that ruined his own, Ertan works his way into his son’s quickly spiraling world without letting on who he really is. But what will happen when the inevitable truth is bound to come out? In German and Turkish with English subtitles.
