Bahri is a refugee living in Rostock. He is doing ok, gets support from the local youth centre who also try to help with his resident permit. And he takes care of his friend Malek, a deaf-mute fellow refugee he feels very close to. One night at the youth centre Bahri witnesses the murder of a doorman. All signs lead to Malek, who has disappeared after the incident. While he searches for Malek and the truth, Bahri’s fragile world falls apart by the hour. Restrained by the limited possibilities he has as a refugee, he feels more and more helpless against a local network of right-wing manipulation, that consists of politicians, lawyers and even the police. And he has to realize, that truth is not a constant – and trust either…
