Synopsis:

Wilson (60), an African refugee wants to become a Hungarian citizen to marry and thus save
his illegal refugee flatmate, Shririn (27) and her infant daughter, Mina from deportation.
While studying for his citizenship exam, Wilson falls in love with his teacher, Mari (58), who
leaves her family behind and moves in with him. Mari plans their future together, but soon it
turns out that Shirin’s difficult situation proves to be an impossible challenge for their
relationship. Unwillingly, Wilson is forced to decide between his love and his solidarity for
his refugee friend.
