The Kings Surrender
A film about friendship. Two groups – a SWAT-team and a group of youths – have each been spending most of their time with each other for several years.
Both groups had to deal with a couple of tough situations which have bonded them together. The group is their refuge, a safe haven, close to being family for most. However, danger is imminent – from within and from outside. The police force is about to be dissolved for financial reasons, the clique threatens to break apart growing up. Their unconditional loyalty is put to the test.
Then a police operation goes tragically wrong. Since the scapegoat is suspected to be part of the group of youths, a clash between the two groups becomes inevitable. In a race against time, everybody chases everybody else in order to desperately try to save their friends, their home and, most importantly, themselves.
In "The Kings Surrender", young people try to hold onto a world that is inexorably breaking apart. In a hopeless battle, they risk it all in order to at least uphold morale.
