Khaled, a young Syrian refugee, sought asylum in Finland but was turned down by the courts and is ordered to return to the ruins of Aleppo. Determined to stay in the country, he escapes from detention and disappears into the streets of Helsinki where he faces violence and discrimination. One day, he meets an owner of a restaurant, Wikström, and is given a job at his restaurant. For a moment, life shows us its sunnier side, but all too soon fate intervenes... A second production brought to you by Director Kaurismäki of a uniquely humorous and heart-warming tale in the refugee crisis.
