Marta Kowalska, 30, flees from Belarus to Sweden together with her 10-year-old daughter, Anna. The two of them end up in a refugee centre in northern Sweden where they meet Ali, an Algerian. Much to Marta’s distress, Ali tries to befriend Anna. When this fear subsides, love begins to grow between Marta and Ali. And although the couple is far from certain of being granted asylum, they share a belief in a future together.
