Twelve-year-old Isaf is struggling with his identity as a Kurdish immigrant in Switzerland when he meets the traumatized Syrian girl Yara. Isaf's parents, once refugees themselves, are hiding Yara and her mother from the authorities. Isaf believes his parents are harbouring the enemy and, at first, refuses to help. But when he finds out that he and Yara share a common passion, they become friends despite their differences. The sudden arrival of the authorities destroys the promise of a happy future together. The journey of Yara and her mother seems to have come to an end, Isaf's meanwhile has just begun.
