The Chechen refugee kids Oskar and Lilli have been living in Austria for six years, but now they are about to be deported along with their mother. When she attempts suicide, it results in the delay of the deportation – but also in the separation of the family. The children’s hope that they will be reunited with their mother is nourished by their love for each other and challenges all bureaucratic obstacles with passion and poetry. Will the family ever be happy again?
