It’s the summer holidays in a sun-drenched Rotterdam, and all 14-year-old Shabu wants to do is see his girlfriend and best friend, and ultimately become a famous rapper.
Unfortunately for him, after illegally driving and subsequently crashing his grandma’s car while she’s away for the summer in their homeland of Suriname, he must work to pay back the €1,200 of damage he has caused.
A larger than life, gleeful documentary that will leave your heart warmed and a smile on your face.
