Synopsis

Belgian drama about star-crossed teenage lovers co-directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Set amongst the street gangs of Brussels, the film follows 15-year-old Black Bronx member Mavela (Martha Canga Antonio) as she falls in love with Marwan (Aboubakr Bensaihi), a member of the rival Moroccan 1080 gang. After being arrested for shoplifting, Mavela meets Marwan behind bars where they immediately fall for each other but know all too well the consequences of getting involved with a rival. As tensions rise between their two gangs and the ferocity of the rivalry escalates, both parties are forced to choose where their loyalties lie amidst threats from their leaders. Will they be able to choose love and escape the violence of the streets together?
