Samir is a talented trumpeter, but his background does not really help him at the elitist music school. When his elder brother is put behind bars after a hold-up, the question is whether Samir will manage to keep to the straight and narrow. Adaptation of Mano Bouzamour’s debut novel.
Sam Zafar - Samir for his family – manages to make it to the white bastion that the elitist music high school in Amsterdam Zuid is. His elder brother – who has already left the straight and narrow path – makes him promise something: Sam must exploit his talents and pass the final exams, as an exception in his family. While prejudice, the lure of crime and his family’s ignorance keep dogging Sam, a coming-of-age story unfolds full of drama, humour, love and music. Based on Mano Bouzamour’s autobiographical novel.
