    • Synopsis
    • Leroy (17) is German – and black. He wears a big afro, but prefers
      Mozart to Hip Hop. Leroy’s friends are outsiders a well, Dimi is Greek and
      Achmed is Palestinian. However they all have girlfriends except Leroy.
      When cute Eva falls in love with him, nobody is as surprised and
      confused as Leroy himself.
      But first love is not always sweet. Eva’s family turns out to be right wing
      extremists. They even named their Australian parrots after two of Hitler’s
      generals. Eva’s five skinhead brothers are longing to kick Leroy’s ass
      asap.
      Though Leroy does not give up easy. He assembles his friends, fights for
      his love and, in his own style, revives the black power movement of the
      70s. His motto: Funk not Fascism.
