Bittersweet lovestory about finding our own roots
Wild parties and occasional sex with men from online dating - this is the life of Parvis, a young German with Iranian roots. The gray stereotype is broken when he has to help in the immigration center as a form of punishment after getting caught stealing in a store. Here, the young man meets shy Amon and their relationship slowly changes from friendship to love… Will it help him feel at home despite the obstacles of the local authorities? This audacious film won the Teddy Award at Berlinale and the Main Jury Award at Mezipatra!
