After his release from prison, Babtou is looking forward to a fresh start: enjoy his freedom with his buddy Dennis, embrace the world and not have to deal with German authorities ever again. But when his spontaneous welcome party escalates, Babtou finds himself handcuffed yet again the same evening. He is confronted with unexpected dramatic news: due to repeated criminal offences he is to be deported to his “home country”, Senegal. But Babtou only knows Senegal from his father’s stories, he was born in Germany, his home is Frankfurt. In order to prevent the imminent deportation at the last second, Babtou and Dennis are willing to do anything.
