Solheil is 15 when his Jewish-Iranian family moves to Wedding, one of Berlin’s multicultural, predominantly Muslim, neighborhoods. Eager to fit in, Soheil hides his Judaism. At night, he joins his gang of friends in graffiti adventures; during the day, he flirts with cool girl Selma. His pretence is disrupted when the gang decide to rob the local Jew-lery, as they call it, run by none other than Soheil’s parents. It’s then that Soheil is forced to embrace who he is and where he comes from.
Raising questions of cultural diversity and religious identity, Wet Dog considers the challenges of friendship and fitting in.
