Surinamese-Dutch Brandon (13) hasn’t had the easiest of starts: there’s always quarrelling at home and he has to care for his younger sister. But this teen is extremely streetwise and soon makes friends with Billy, the cool leader of a youth gang. One evening Brandon breaks into Kai’s judo school, and he catches the 13-year-old. The former judo champion recognises the problems the young man is facing and tries to get him to focus his energies in the ‘dojo’. When Brandon – who has risen up the street hierarchy – becomes involved in a big crime, the teenager is forced to choose once and for all which side he is on.
