The 20 year old Moroccan, Lekhdar, hides in Barcelona’s »Street of Thieves«. He is hiding from the police, and from an organisation he used to work for in Tager, the »Group for the Spreading of Koranic Thought«. Lekhdar wants to be free to sin and to prey when he feels like it. Then his childhood friend, Bassam, shows up. As it gradually becomes clear that Bassam is planning an assassination, Lekhdar is forced to take a position against his friend.
