When 11-year-old gang leader Ole and his buddies Marco and Milan nicked 12-year-old Davie's school bag, Ole could never in his wildest dreams have imagined that a short time later he would appear on stage with Davie at a school karaoke contest dressed as a princess with makeup on... Neither could his friends.
