Brief synopsis

Der vermeintlich heterosexuelle geflüchtete Syrer Waseem wird durch seine ungewollten Gefühle für seinen deutschen Freier Lars dazu gezwungen, sich nicht nur einem schmerzhaften Prozess der Selbsterkenntnis zu unterwerfen, sondern sieht sich auch ganz realen Bedrohungen in der Lebensrealität seiner Unterkunft gegenüber. Ein vergeblicher Kampf gegen die eigenen Gefühle beginnt, der von einem wachsenden Verlangen nach Nähe und Geborgenheit unterlaufen wird.

===========

Despite the fact that he identifies as straight, Syrian refugee Waseem prostitutes himself with other men since living in Germany. His emerging feelings towards his client Lars not only force the 30 year old to go through a painful process of self-discovery but also pose a serious threat within the reality of living in a shelter. The unavailing fight against his own feelings seems to be undermined by his growing desire for closeness and safety.
