The whole world is against Matteo, a weak, vulnerable boy whose life is at a tipping point. His clumsy attempts to gain the respect of his father fail miserably. One night, Matteo is led away by two men. They take him to an isolated Alp where he is to attend a summer boot camp. However, Matteo is in for a big surprise: once arrived, he realises that the rebellious adolescents Anton, Dion and Ali are the ones calling the shots in the camp.

Matteo succeeds in becoming a member of the gang. At night, they drive together into the city, where they go on intense trips full of aggression and violence. This is their war. Against adults. Against everyone and everything. The isolated Alp is the perfect hideout – but there's no way back.

Anton, Dion und Ali, drei traumatisierte, wilde Jugendliche, haben auf dem Hof das Sagen. Sie führen einen Krieg gegen die Erwachsenen: Nachts fahren sie in die Stadt und stiften Chaos...
