When an Arabic refugee, sixteen-year-old Amin, arrives together with his sister Latifa in a camp in the middle of an European forest, he initially hopes to have escaped the turmoil of war in his home country forever. One thing that fills him with new vitality is his friendship with the 25 year-old Sharif, who takes care of him and audaciously shows him how to circumvent the strict rules of the western society. What begins as an exciting adventure, however, gradually develops into a nightmare. The full force of the events of distant war catches up to the exiles when a firearm turns up.
