Eight-year-old Oskar and thirteen-year-old Lilli are Chechen refugees who have lived in Austria for the past six years. But they face deportation. The psychological pressure is too much for their mother who has a meltdown and the authorities temporarily postpone the deportation, while Oskar and Lilli end up at different foster families. Brother and sister remain in secret contact. Hoping they will soon be together again, the two try to overcome every bureaucratic obstacle with imagination and enthusiasm. The bitter-sweet odyssey about the different ways in which we perceive the world around us in order to survive.
