Synopsis

A group of teenagers decides to stage the history of the US Civil Rights Movement in Berlin in order to understand how to cope with the racist brutality of German police and society.

But the reality bursts on the stage when their mate Ibrahima, a 17 years old asylum seeker from Guinea, receives the order to leave Berlin and to move to another refugee center in Dortmund, where he would probably be expelled.

What would Martin Luther King and Malcolm X have done to save the life of their beloved friend Ibrahima?
