Mentor GF Jerome Braun erklärt: "Niels Laupert ist es gelungen, die teilweise dramatische Perspektivlosigkeit von Jugendlichen in einem beeindruckenden Film darzustellen. Die inzwischen immer häufiger bekannt werdenden Fälle von schlimmer Gewalt bis hin zu Tötungsdelikten durch und unter Jugendlichen müssen unsere Gesellschaft dringend aufhorchen lassen.
