Cap is 17, good-looking, and thinks the world owes him. He wants it all - parties, girls, fun: the sort of cool lifestyle other boys have. It’s just too bad that he grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in Hamburg-Veddel, a multi-cultural island on the River Elbe where his African mother works her fingers to the bone for a pittance. One day Cap overhears a rumour about a posh party in Hamburg’s finest avenue and decides he wants a piece of the action. He makes it past security to the poolside party where he flirts outrageously with the gorgeous Lara. When Lara takes him for Jules, the son of the house, it feels so good he doesn’t bother clearing up her misapprehension - and ends up getting more and more entangled in his double life...
