Max, Emre, Jash, David and Hilson are five school friends who live in-between sea containers and large ships in Heijplaat, a working-class district in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. They all have different ethnic backgrounds – Turkish, Surinamese, Syrian, Chinese and Dutch, even though all five were born in the Netherlands. For this close-knit group of friends, the difference in backgrounds does not matter, their daily lives are pretty much same. There is not much to do in Heijplaat which makes their friendship so important.
