Asia, a young Pole from Belarus, arrives in Poland with not much more than an address of her estranged boyfriend, Piotr. It is a desperate attempt to get back with him and escape from her country. Asia does not find Piotr, but she does find his new girlfriend... Asia has little money and nowhere to stay, her only hope is Halil, a fourteen- year-old Arab boy she finds working in a kebab shop. Feelings quickly develop between these new immigrants, at least from Halil's side: a mix of desperation and need; using and loving, between a young woman and a young boy...
