His family lives in London, he in Mogadishu. In England, he would face trial, in Somalia death – for the same reason in both places: he deserted the Somalian Al-Shabaab terrorist organization.

Mohammed is 23 and on the run. In Mogadishu he is hiding from the Islamists whom he betrayed. His only source of support is his uncle – and Skype, which lets him see his wife, Fathi, and their son. She is living in the claustrophobic environment of a London flat with very many relatives, not knowing whether the father of her child will ever return. The film is made from the position of a neutral observer, but it shows both Mohammed’s life in Africa and Fathi’s parallel life in Europe in great detail. The end result presents the complex tale of two young parents who are struggling to be reunited and to ensure that their child never has to experience what they have.
