Pretty run-of-the-mill "addiction/recovery" story at it's core, and Ruben feels just a little bit too "writerly" in his resolve. For a punk world, there is a surprisingly lack of bite here. Still there are a lot of weird, painful little details that are really great - that daughter/father moment playing the ~chanson~ at the end, with Ruben just hearing it through his implants was just very painful. Ahmed plays the role with unnerving charisma and very close to heart(those eyes!), definitely his star-making turn here.
