Growing up in a Palestinian refugee camp, 14-year-old Ali learned to hate Jews at an early age. When he and his family immigrate to Berlin after escaping Lebanon, Ali attempts to fit in with his Arab peers by vandalizing the apartment of the elderly Russian Jew who lives upstairs. Threatened with deportation, he is forced to help repair the damage. Based on actual events, the film is a heartwarming of an unlikely friendship.
