A woman in Germany starts a journey to explore the life of a dead illegal immigrant and finds her own loneliness, and an old man in Kosovo whos loss has brought him to the end of his journey. After an accident, she tries to condole with the young man`s family out of guilt. Little by little, she is involuntarily exploring the young man`s life in Germany and opening her own well of sadness. In the meantime, Ismet in Kosovo neither asks for, nor expects any help from others, having lost everything in life he worked hard to build. He has lost his wife and daughter in a senseless rage of war and their presence still perpetuates inside his half-burned house. Now he has lost his son as well.
