This is the story of Azad, a young Kurd who goes to stay with his brother in Germany. However, the hatred between Turks and Kurds lives on here, too. In an argument with two Turks he kills their aggressive dog which leads to an avalanche of revenge. The film is told from the perspective of Kurdish immigrants and its provocative images encourage a re-examination of common prejudice and cliché.
