Unwanted is a drama set in present day Amsterdam that tells the story of ALBAN and
his mother ZANA. Alban is a troublemaker and a misfit who often ends up in fights
with other kids. But he is also a dreamer and spends a lot of his time alone on a
rooftop of a building. Zana is a war refugee from Kosovo whose main worry is to bring
food to the table. One day Alban ends up in a fight which gets out of hand. To keep
him out of trouble, Zana arranges a job for Alban at a bicycle store. There, by chance
he meets Ana, and starts a relationship with her. Soon after they find out that they
share a common background, as Ana’s father is a Serb from Kosovo. The fact that
Albanians and Serbs were at war with each other does not impress them. After all
they both feel Dutch. But when Zana finds out about it she reacts unpleasantly
surprised and shocked.
