After having lived half of his life in Vienna, Hussein wishes to return to Syria to spend his remaining time there. An absurd farce begins when he together with his son, a doctor and a transsexual nurse, embarks on a journey against the stream of refugees and are stranded in a no-man’s land at the Turkish border where the party must relate to a dead man in the luggage, Turkish officials and a coup d’état. Brilliantly scripted comedy.
