Adil and his mother have fled from a dark secret to make their home in a small hard stricken mining town. They hope to lead a normal life but Adil, whose violent character does not fit in with keeping a low profile, has a hard time not being spotted. When he does get into the local motorcross club and starts a love story with Romy a fellow school mate, he gets the feeling he has made a place for himself. But when the town finds out that he is the brother of the terrorist that traumatised France two years earlier all his hopes fly away. He will always be a monster in the eyes of others and if he wants to survive he has no other choice than to leave all his dreams behind.
