Brief synopsis

Deutsch :
Der 18jährige William aus dem Kongo versucht die Grenze nach Europa zu überwinden, um dort seinen verschollenen Bruder zu suchen. In Marokko trifft er zufällig auf den gleichaltrigen Briten Gyllen, der das Luxus-Wohnmobil seines Stiefvaters entwendet hat und damit dem Familienurlaub entflohen ist. Die beiden werden zu perfekten Verbündeten: Getrieben von Abenteuerlust sowie einer großen Sehnsucht bahnt sich das ungleiche Paar seinen Weg durch Europa. Während die jungen Männer auf ihrer Reise im-mer stärker zusammenwachsen, werden sie mit Entscheidungen konfrontiert, die nicht nur ihr eigenes Leben nachhaltig beeinflussen...

English:
Bursting with energy, Sebastian Schipper’s follow-up to the much admired VICTORIA is a ride along the open road with two boys from different worlds, from the shores of Morocco to the camps of Calais.
ROADS follows William (Bak), a young man from the Congo, as he attempts to break through Europe’s borders in search of his brother. By chance he teams up with Gyllen (Whitehead), a wild and sharp-witted British runaway who has fled his family’s Moroccan holiday in his stepfather’s campervan.
Their trip across Europe is an unpredictable and thrilling ride fuelled by the unstoppable momentum, chaos and humour only a pair of teenagers living on the edge can ignite.
In cementing a brotherly bond, Gyllen and William learn that to truly depend on each other is the most important gift of all.
