In the Parc-Extension neighborhood of Montreal, Hakeem works in his uncle's car wash with his childhood friend Anthony. After school and work, the teenager returns home, where, as a replacement for his absent father, he gives his wages to his mother so that the family can survive. What his mother doesn’t know is that Hakeem and his friend sometimes locate luxury cars for the local mafia, with which Hakeem's uncle is involved.

Wanting to make more money, the two youngsters propose stealing the cars themselves for the gangsters. Everything works well, until Anthony makes a big mistake.
