There’s nothing to keep the impassioned social worker Wolski in Germany. He has prepared his departure in great detail. He wants to help criminal youths get a second chance in life on an uninhabited island in the Kingdom of Tonga. Wolski’s first candidate is Marcel, 16-years-old and forever caught up in drugs, violence and criminality. Marcel wants anything but to have to be on an uninhabited island with Wolski. When the situation escalates, Marcel ends up in jail. Wolski manages to prevent the boy’s conviction – for the price that Marcel is not allowed to leave the island for an entire year.
