Synopsis
Twenty-six-year-old rapper Lukas lives with his older producer Mischa in a factory building where they run a cannabis plantation. Lukas' dream of making it as a musician is on the wane. He has grown cold inside and only really feels alive in moments of excess. When he makes a spectacle of himself at a gig in a small club, high on cocaine and alcohol, his younger brother Sami---an ambitious rapper himself--feels nothing but shame for his brother's embarrassing performance. Mischa has had enough of Lukas' escapades and wants to bring Sami into the band. Sensing he is about to be left out in the cold, Lukas indulges in further excess. He wonders if he should confront his brother to prove to Mischa that he can make it on his own.
