17-year-old Asher has always been the wild troublemaker. It’s hard for him to concentrate in class, and he is compelled by a lot of rage and violence; yet he is also street-wise and endowed with a considerable amount of charm. While his oppressive father sees him as a natural successor to the family’s scaffolding business, Asher finds a different masculine role model in Rami, his new literature teacher. Feeling he can’t take the humiliation his father puts him through anymore, Asher looks for a change. But when an unexpected tragedy occurs, Asher crosses lines from which there is no turning back.
