As Khaled, a young Syrian mechanic who has escaped Aleppo’s living nightmare finds his way into Helsinki by accidentally stowing himself away on a coal freighter, on the other side of the town, Wikström, a joyless travelling salesman, experiences a profound mid-life crisis. Under those circumstances, Khaled and Wikström who are desperately looking for a fresh start will eventually cross paths, when the latter after an endless night of high-stakes poker buys himself a decrepit restaurant and offers Khaled not only shelter but also work. In the end, no one can say whether the Syrian refugee has a future in the Finnish capital, what is undisputed though, is that he will find an eccentric but affectionate new family.
