Heijplaat is a workers' colony in the seaside district of Rotterdam. People of different nationalities and cultures have lived here side by side since the early 20th century, lured by the offer of work in the harbour.

Max, Emre, Yash, David and Hilson are five inseparable school friends. They all grew up in the Netherlands, though their families come from Turkey, Suriname, Syria and China. There are not many places for entertainment in the industrial district, yet the group have found a playground for their adventures among the freight containers and ships, and the difference between their origins and their beliefs is no obstacle to their friendship.
