Shahib has been living in the Netherlands without a residence permit for twenty years, after he fled his motherland Somalia at the age of nine with his mother and brother. He looks back on his experience in a flowing mix of word, music and performance. The film questions the robustness of good intentions both in friendship and in bureaucracy.
