Marisa, a 20-year old German girl, hates foreigners, Jews, cops and everyone she blames for the decline of her country. She provokes, drinks and fights, and is determined that her next tattoo will be a portrait of Adolf Hitler. The only place she feels at home is the neo-Nazi gang she belongs to where hate, violence and heavy parties are part of the daily routine. When a 14-year old Svenja joins the group, she views Marisa like her role model as she seems to fit the purest idea of a combat girl who fights for the group’s ideology. But Marisa’s convictions start eroding slowly when she accidentally meets a young Afghan refugee. Confronted with him, she will learn that the black and white principles of her gang are not the only way. Will Marisa ever be able to get out of her group?
