maxresdefault

Ibrahim, a young German of Turkish descent, leads a double life, living with his tradition-bound family and spending his days looking for a respectable job. But outside his parent’s aparatment, Ibo (as he’s called by his family and friends) is a confident gay man who works in a sex shop and is on the hunt for Mr. Right.

One fateful day, the charismatic and self-described straight ‘Al’ appears at his door and Ibo is instantly obsessed with the wrestler and petty criminal, secretly following him around the city. What begins as a one-sided infatuation quickly evolves into a flirtatious yet meaningful friendship. A series of unexpected events in their lives draws Ibo and Ali closer together but also threatens to tear them apart.
