    • Synopsis
    • Germany is tense from immigration and terrorism. Danyal is a young Lebanese refugee living in Berlin. His only sense of freedom is doing parkour, leaping across rooftops with his GoPro trying to be a YouTube star - anything to avoid growing up.
      When he accidently slips and falls off a roof, landing at the feet of teenage Elisabeth, his camera films a city terrorist bombing and things start to get complicated.
      In an instant the mysterious bomb-survivor girl wins Danyal’s heart. Romance blossoms briefly between them, despite disapproval from her sinister and controlling stepfather Vaughn.
      She becomes the newspaper cover girl - a victim of terrorism.
      Danyal’s world falls apart when she disappears and the news reports her death.
      He refuses to believe she is dead and is determined to find her.
      Looking for answers he obsesses over his accidental video footage of the bombing.
      With the help from Felix, an eccentric conspiracy theorist, he finds sinister contradictions with the official news story. Posting his findings online, his internet fame grows. He tracks Vaughn and finds Elisabeth alive, but almost unrecognisable and unable to remember him.
      Danyal, his parkour partner and Felix attempt to rescue Elisabeth, free her from the spell Vaughn has woven around her and expose a conspiracy of fake news events.
