A 12-year-old boy – half Kurd, half Turk – arrives in a foreign country. At school he doesn’t speak the language, at home there is tension in the family. His only happy moments are when he thinks about Ana, the girl in his class with whom he is in love. Just when the clash between real life and his dreamworld seems to be at its peak, he meets his neighbor, a 33-year-old macho with a shattered love life who becomes his first friend in this new country.
