Alan, a teacher from Iranian Kurdistan, having been exposed to have taught Kurdish kids their mother tongue - a major crime punished by death in Iran - immigrates to Sweden with his family. 

Alan has fought for his ethnic identity, his wife Astéra wanted to keep her family safe. Now they got security in a country away from the loved ones, their identity down to a small circle.

Having formed different principles and priorities makes two persons who have previously loved each other, disunite, dealing with the anxiety and insecurity of their new life in exile. Still, they need to pretend to be a united family as not to risk rejection of their application for residence permit.
