Kenny (31) arrived from Sri Lanka, having come to Germany to further his career as a musician. He rents a spare room from Rola. Rola (80) lives alone on the outskirts of Berlin, where she sometimes needs to protect herself by carrying a gun. In living together these two different individuals find that life is not merely dependent on personal security, instead discovering the possibility that our dreams may define our true reality.
