Zahra and Fatima, identical twins, are separated from their sisters and their mother during their flight to Europe on the border of Turkey and Iran.
As gunshots go off, the girls panic and run in the wrong direction. Back to Iran, while their mother and the two remaining sisters are driven into Turkey. Here begins their journey that they seem to have no control over.
The film closely follows the girls in their attempt to find their family again and travel together to the Netherlands.
Director Mijke de Jong based the story of their flee to Europe plus the loss of their parents on the story of Malihe and Nahid Rezaie. What they experienced along the way, the dilemmas and the struggle to make money is partly based on their own experience and partly based on stories from other women.
