Brief synopsis

Abu Akka tells us his story as a mosaic of memories as we stroll through his hometown. He grew up in a far from perfect neighborhood. There is a shadow over Abu Akka's Past - a prank he pulled as a child that went disastrously wrong. He was consequently sent to prison as a small child and still faces the consequences of that day. But he also remembers the good times in this fisherman town. There he met his first and only love: Céline, a Swiss backpacker.
