Fariba, prosecuted in Iran because of her love affair with another woman, flees to Germany. Her application for asylum is turned down - but her desperate prospects are improved by the suicide of her fellow inmate Siamak. She assumes his identity and, using his temporary permit of sojourn, heads off to a provincial village. At first glance, her survival seems to be assured, but in the refugee hostel, she is obliged to uphold her male disguise in cramped quarters and a single mistake could blow her cover.
