FULL DESCRIPTION

Mohammed is 18. Having fled from the war in Lebanon to Germany, he is now trying to find his way in a world of men: there is the gruff boss of the motorbike garage where he helps out; the co- worker who tells stories of his experiences in the Foreign Legion; and above all Lakhdar (27), his eccentric and reckless brother. The two live without their parents in the dilapidated former family home in Berlin Tegel. Planes constantly thunder overhead. Between a precarious work situation and the hope for an apprenticeship, between heroic stories about comradeship from his co-workers and his own memories of war, between the good and increasingly mad ravings and words of advice from his brother, the young Palestinian has to ask himself the question: what does it actually mean to be a man?The semi-documentary film was developed under close contact with the two main characters and takes us into the experience world of a young man, who is amazed, believes and will be disappointed, he hopes and sobers again until he can no longer stand it.
