This snack bar, owned by Ali, in a suburb of Rotterdam, is a refuge for the local Moroccan youth. They are wild, violent and criminal. To them Ali is like an old, trustworthy Turkish uncle, understanding, funny but also strict. But what if Ali, with his addiction to gambling, jeopardizes their habitat?
