Kiki & Tiger

Kiki & Tiger
Scene from "Kiki & Tiger"

Based on true events, Kiki & Tiger is the story of a friendship between a Kosovo Albanian and a Serb - an impossible friendship in Europe of the nineties. Kiki comes to Germany seeking political asylum, only to become an illegal alien driven out of his country by Serbs. His best friend is a Serb, Tiger, who grew up in Germany and cannot relate to all the nationalistic zeal in his home country. Together, they defy all external pressure. It seems as if their friendship is indestructible...
