The video uses the Shakespearean tragedy "Rome and Juliet" as a frame for contemporary issues such as the refugee crisis, homophobia, and racism.
The clip is set in rural Germany and stars Blanco and Tobias Kagelind as secret lovers. The video jumps between scenes of their courtship, adult rendezvous and the forces keeping them apart. Kagelind's character comes from a group of skinheads and in one brutal scene they attack a Mercutio-esque friend of Blanco's character sparking a spiral of violence ending in tragedy.
