Amin, a successful academic and with a loving partner, recalls fleeing Afghanistan to start his new life in Denmark. A documentary genre-defying approach sees Amin and long-time friend in conversation as animated characters, bringing not only themselves, their homes, and even the recording equipment into the frame. Many moments during Amin's journey and that of his family, who also tried but failed to make the same passage, are brought home to us in exquisite detail.
