Parvis, the son of exiled Iranians, copes with life in his small hometown by immersing himself in pop culture, Grindr dates, and raves. After being caught shoplifting, he is sentenced to community service at a refugee shelter where he meets siblings Banafshe and Amon, who have fled Iran. As a romantic attraction between Parvis and Amon grows, the fragile relationship between the three is put to a test. They find and lose each other throughout a summer of fleeting youth, and intense first love. An attempt at a joint future brings them to the stark realization that, in Germany, they are not equal.
