Chiko has wits and charm and only one aim in mind: to make it to the top. Money, power and respect is all that counts for him and his best friend Tibet. Together, they ruthlessly work their way up from small time crooks to major drug dealers and soon catch the attention of Brownie, the drug lord who holds the keys to everything the two friends dream of. Ambitious Chiko soon becomes his right hand man, but when Tibet crosses the violent Brownie, he finds himself in a dangerous situation with everything he risked his life for at stake.

It might be one of the world's richest cities but every beast has its belly and here, in the very underbelly, Chiko lives in a world where violence, staking and keeping a claim, and drug taking are the norm. Where down is not an option, Chiko is determined to rise to the top, whatever and whomever it costs. Regardless of time and circumstances, he wants immediate and unlimited respect. And with the means justifying his ends, for Chiko every means is justified. Isa goes by the nickname Chiko, and lives in a Hamburg suburb. Most people might think that means that Chiko is from a privileged background, but the reality is that every day of his life is a struggle. But now, in the dark underbelly of one of the world's richest cities, Chiko vows to get the respect he deserves by any means necessary. ...Chiko
