WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK of ‘De Ontmoeting’
Omar (14) spends every day in a football cage with the boys from his neighbourhood. His group of friends is close, but they are also hard on each other and any vulnerability is constantly punished. One day Omar’s younger brother Abdul wants to join them. At first he is laughed at, but in the course of the day Omar sees his dear brother change, while he also begins to doubt the behaviour of his friends.
