On the outskirts of the city of Beirut, a young Palestinian man, Raed Abu Ajaj, aged 19, lives alone in his run down house in the Burj al-Barajneh refugee camp. Although his family succeeded in claiming asylum in Germany and thus able to build a better life, Raed was prevented from applying to join them once he reached the age of eighteen. Amongst the daily routine of his work as a trainee nurse and his difficult living conditions in the camp, Raed receives some terrible news. This revelation leaves him in a state of shock and confusion between the hope of a reunification with his family or from being prevented from saying his final farewell.
