Yesmin, Nati and Bella are 17-year-old best friends living in Vienna. Yesmin is an ordinary teenager, but because she is also Muslim, she can't afford to make the same mistakes as her friends. When Yesmin's friends post a silly video they made online, it suddenly becomes very popular. Yesmin's friends dive deeper into her culture, which causes mixed feelings in Yesmin. Parental expectations, popularity, social media and the conflict between the rebelliousness of youth and Yesmin's culture threaten to destroy the girls' friendship.
