Feature Film | 2009

This is the story of 17-year-old Flo and his gang, the Rox. A story of great romance and hard choices. When his brother, the leader of the Rox, gets into trouble, Flo has to decide between the love of his life, or his flesh and blood. It’s a matter of life and death…

Far from the tourist attractions, where the capital of Berlin is dark and dangerous, is the home turf of the Rox. Always front and center in a crunch is Flo (JIMI BLUE OCHSENKNECHT), whose cool older brother Chris (WILSON GONZALEZ OCHSENKNECHT) is still the leader of the posse, even while he’s doing time. But Flo’s world gets turned upside down when he meets Sofie (EMILIA SCHÜLE ), his exact opposite: cosmopolitan, smart and from a good family. Despite all their differences, the two find each other irresistibly drawn to each other, finally giving in head over heels to their feelings. But when Chris gets out of jail, things come to a head: Chris is in debt to big-time criminal Rico (CHRISTIAN BLÜMEL). In order to pay Rico back, Chris plans a heist with the Rox. But the job goes bad and Flo is forced to make a choice between his flesh and blood – and his heart…
