Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll – this is the only thing the young Iranian Mustafa has in mind. He couldn’t care less about his medical studies. Day by day he prefers meeting attractive girls in Soho’s numerous nightclubs instead of studying to complete his degree. His dissolute lifestyle comes to a sudden end when shy Swedish student Monika is expecting his baby and his parents decide to cut off the money supply…

This film reveals everything you’ve always wanted to know about lazy students, unwanted pregnancy and premarital sex.
