During a road trip across Amsterdam, three young adventurers from a suburb go all out to show what they are worth. A coming-of-age film full of indomitable zest and future dreams.
Bilal, Gregg and Kevin, three seventeen-year-old boys from an Amsterdam suburb, cannot wait for real life to begin. After their final examinations, they will fly! On one of countless boring schooldays, a group of girls challenge them to meet them at the famous nightclub Jimmy Woo that night, so they go all out to get access to the club. Shady El-Hamus' feature debut is an energetic road trip full of humour and boundless optimism. The film title is street lingo for 'the life'.
