Murat is 17, he is both Berliner and Turk – he keeps the fact that he is gay secret from his mother and older brother. But the family has another secret, too. On one of his nights out, Murat bumps into the transvestite Lola – the oldest brother, whom the family pretends does not exist. Murat doesn’t have long to get to know Lola’s world before Lola is attacked by Neonazis and found dead. But instead of accepting the obvious, Murat discovers the incredible.
