Parvis, the son of exiled Iranians, faces life in his little one hometown dedicating himself to pop culture, Grindr meetings and raves. Caught stealing, he is sentenced to community service at a refugee reception center where he meets the brothers Banafshe and Amon, who fled Iran. As the attraction between Parvis and Amon grows, the fragile relationship between the three is put to the test, with the clear understanding that, in Germany, they are not equals.
