Mille and her boyfriend, Kenny, are heartily sick of the lousy mood of the other kids living in the home. They’d give anything to get away from the place and, when Kenny is offered an apartment of his own, it looks as though at last the couple will have an opportunity to put everything behind them.

Mille moves in with Kenny but, alas, their old problems don’t seem to want to go away. Kenny can’t kick his old habits: his mates, the beer and the drugs. While Mille and her girlfriend, Anja, are busy flogging their guts out working at a bakery, Kenny just hangs out. This is not the way Mille envisaged life in their new apartment. Meanwhile, life back at the home is given a real lift by the arrival of Sami, a hip-hopper. Sami knows exactly what he wants; he has a goal and invests everything he has in trying to attain it.Mille is fascinated by the sensitive and attentive Sami and yet, she is still as loyal to Kenny a ever, which puts a strain on their burgeoning relationship. Torn between Kenny and Sami, Mille realises she ought to have more self-respect. It’s time she found out who she is and what she really wants. (Kinderfilmfest Berlin 2004)

Mille lives in a juvenile center because she doesn’t get along with her alcoholic mother.Her boyfriend Kenny also lives at the center, but one day the young couple is offered a flat. They move in and it looks like a bright new beginning for them. But when Kenny begins to deal hash from the flat, Mille quickly tires of her new life. At the same time, Sami from the juvenile center begins to show Mille attention. Sami is cute and a rapper, and when he asks Mille to do some vocals for his band, they start off a flirt that propels the three youngsters into an explosive drama.
