This snackbar, owned by Ali, in a suburb of a large Dutch city is a refuge for the local Moroccan youth. They are ferocious, violent and criminal. To them Ali is like an old, trustworthy Turkish uncle; understanding, funny but also strict. But what if Ali jeopardizes all of this? SNACKBAR is a film, which is as hard, funny, tragic, wild and unpredictable as life itself.
