Gangs of Copenhagen

Casper is trying to support his family by performing petty crimes for notorious fence and gang leader Jamal. The pay doesn't match Casper's ambitions, and so he tries his luck working for Bjørn, a pimp from a rivalling gang. Jamal doesn't take lightly on Casper's betrayal, and the situation soon escalates into a full blown gang war. Things aren't going so well on the home front either, and Casper's moral resolve is put to the test when he recruits his own kid brother to the gang.
