Zeiten ändern dich (English: Times change you) is a German biographical film directed by Uli Edel and starring the German rapper Bushido, Elyas M'Barek, Moritz Bleibtreu, Karoline Schuch, Fler, Kay One and Nyze. The film is based on Bushido's 2008 autobiography.  The film premiered in Berlin on 3 February 2010. 
During a performance tour in Germany, Anis Ferchichi (Bushido) celebrates his birthday with his crew on the tour bus. Ferchichi gets a letter from his father. This brings back memories of his difficult childhood in Berlin which are then shown through flashbacks.
Ferchichi spends his childhood in a deprived area of Berlin with his Tunisian father, German mother, and younger brother Sercan. He grows up in a violent environment and often watches his father beating his mother. He is a poor student, but embraces music.
He goes to college and leaves his girlfriend after she has been unfaithful to him. He earns a lot of money selling drugs and celebrates his success as a drug dealer at a party, where he meets Selina, who becomes his new girlfriend.
One day, drug dealers break into the apartment Ferchichi shares with his family, tie up his mother and his brother Sercan, ransack their possessions and steal their money. After this experience, Ferchichi spends more time with his friends.
Years later, Ferchichi, now an adult, starts freestyle rapping with his friends, including Patrick Losensky (Fler). A video game inspires Ferchichi to call himself "Bushido". He and Losensky sign a record contract with the record label Hardcore Berlin, based on Aggro Berlin. Bushido leaves Hardcore Berlin after a dispute with his manager as the film ends.
