STRONGER THAN BLOOD

by Oliver Kienle

synopsis

Tommy and Sule (both 19) are like brothers: a bullet-proof friendship. Their posse is their family, they live life like there’s no tomorrow and dream of their own tuning shop - until Tommy gets caught with some dope they were going to sell. His six months in juvenile prison, with cell mates who relentlessly torment him, prove to be a living hell. Since he is still on probation when he gets out, Tommy has sworn off the drugs. He knows that someone snitched on him, and he is going to find out who put him in jail. When the going gets tough, though, the only support he finds is from Sule and his old friends. And Sule has the master plan: one last drug deal to finance their tuning shop!
