The official trailer for Dutch music video director Sam de Jong’s directorial debut, “Prince,” has a very real, documentary-esque vice to it, which makes it only fitting that VICE is backing it.

The film, which will be distributed through a collaboration with FilmBuff and VICE Media, follows 17-year-old Ayoub as he comes to terms with adulthood. While dreaming of impressing both Laura, a beautiful neighborhood girl, and the local tough guys, he meets Kalpa, the local kingpin, who reforms his life. Although he’s getting what he wants, Ayoub soon learns these changes are more than he bargained for. The film stars Ayoub Elasri, Jorik Scholten and Achraf Meziani. 

“Prince” will hit theaters on August 14. Check out the trailer above, courtesy of VICE
