On a sweltering summer day, 11-year olds Kian and Nadir see how Nadir's family is arrested by the immigration police. To prevent Nadir from being taken as well, the two friends decide to run away. But fleeing seems to be more difficult than expected, especially when it turns out that Kian is on the run for a very different reason than helping out his friend.
