Paul is fourteen-years-old and has a passion for motorbikes that has led him to neglect his studies. One morning, he asks his friends to take care of his motorbike while he goes to a meeting with his teachers and, at his return, the bike is gone and nobody is able to tell him who has taken it. Some days later, after a rehearsal with his band, he runs into a young unknown man driving his bike. It’s Karim, a rascal mechanic learner with whom he starts a new friendship while they work together at the workshop trying to repair Paul’s bike.
