A man returns to his home country after 50 years. Two siblings are investigating the disappearance of their older brother. A Syrian woman is fighting for asylum. A father that suppresses his feelings. A young woman that is nagged by her feeling of guilt. A mother that relearns to have compassion and a man in his best years, who is falling in love again. Our film is a family story. It separates into different episodes, that circle around the disappearance of 22-year-old Khalil and deals with the question, what drives a young person to radicalize.
