Passionate about hip-hop and raised by his grandmother in Vama village, in Suceava county, Mohamed Tomescu wants to change his name and get rid of its Syrian association, but he cannot face his father in this matter. His already cold relationship with his father is transformed into a weaker one as a result of this desire.

With a cinema vérité approach, the camera makes its presence felt and the music plays an important part in the hip-hop improvisation scenes.
