    • Synopsis
    • Leroy (16) is a notoriously unlucky Afro-German boy who must fight against an identity crisis born of the fact that he is both a highly cultured, well-mannered German AND black, thus belonging to two minorities.
      Leroy has a girlfriend, Eva, whose brothers happen to be Neo-Nazi skinheads, Leroy’s natural enemies. After some time, and against all odds, Leroy and Eva’s brothers have managed to become friends, and one day they ask Leroy to join them, afro and all. Leroy declines and sets off on a long walk through Berlin with his Greek friend Dimitrios.
      When Leroy and Dimmi almost get beaten up by hostile skinheads, Eva bravely saves the day and then it dawns on Leroy how he can eradicate fascism from its very core.
