Jan, a man in his twenties, and his friend Cracker are involved in several crimes in their neglected city suburb. After meeting the “golden youth” beauty Sabina, he looks for a fresh start in downtown circles, but only finds contempt. His hopes for love, compassion and opportunity are dashed by the even more ruthless rules of the bourgeoisie, and he comes to realise that the only one he can count on is himself.
