The story of an unlikely friendship between a Syrian asylum seeker and an elderly Finnish restaurant owner. Khaled arrives in Helsinki concealed in a coal container. Dazed and frustrated, he makes a break for it and heads out onto the streets. With hilarious sight gags, poker-faced one-liners, and a toe-tapping rockabilly soundtrack, the film balances wit with a pressing critique of the unforgiving bureaucracy that greets vulnerable asylum seekers in modern-day Europe.
