15-year-old Somalian Ali and 40-year-old Iranian Massoud decide to flee the Swedish refugee camp they're living in after witnessing a group of refugees being deported. Disenchanted with Sweden, the duo find an unlikely ally in Swedish blonde Louise. Louise takes the two refugees under her wing, travelling with them to visit her parents in the north. On their journey north, they encounter a number of people who help them and some who just want to use them. As Massoud and Louise grow closer, Ali finds himself feeling jealous.
