12-year-old Veysel, half Kurd half Turkish, is new in a strange country. At school he does not understand the language, and at home there is a big family conflict going on. The only happy moments are when he thinks of Ana, the girl from his class who he has deeply fallen in love with. The struggle between dream and reality seems to crush Veysel, until one day he meets his neighbour, a 33-year-old lovesick macho who becomes his first friend in this new country.
