Totally Meschugge?!

Charly and Benny both 11 years old, are best buddies. Part of their closed circuit is Hamid, a refugee child from Syria. But carefree days of childhood are coming to an end, when Benny inherits a chain with the shield of David from his Grandpa. What is a sign of junction for Benny to his beloved grandfather turns out as an unexpected found food for some other kids in school. Quickly an atmosphere of racism, mistrust and cruelty is expanding amongst them, which not only is a burden for the three friends but even turning Bennys life in real danger.
