Fifteen year old Mavela is a member of the notorious gang Black Bronx. When she falls head over heels in love with the charismatic Marwan, a boy from the rival gang 1080-ers, the two young people are brutally forced to choose between loyalty to their gang or the love for each other.

MUBI's take

Transplanting the story of Romeo and Juliet to the gritty underworld of contemporary Brussels, this tale of doomed love fiercely tackles racial discrimination and gang violence in Belgium. High-spirited performances from the young cast imbue this blistering drama with an urgent sense of immediacy.
