Rashid, the son of a Lebanese-Palestinian family, is neither German nor Lebanese nor Palestinian. He is an ‘Arabboy’, or so he calls himself in the chatrooms where he and his friends exchange violent home videos. They obey the law of the street, where every man is out for himself. Anyone who can’t take what’s to be had is a ‘victim’ – incapable of the fight for survival. With the support of Nabil, who has made it from a refugee kid to a top gun in the local prostitution scene, Rashid embarks on a criminal career until his drug addiction takes control of his life. His arrest saves him. In prison, he waits to be deported – and Germany, the country he once hated, becomes the epitome of all he ever wished for.
