Bored by everyday life, 62-year-old Walter (Richard Jenkins), professor and widower, reluctantly attends a congress in New York, where he owns an apartment.
To his surprise, he finds two illegal aliens living there: the Syrian Tarek (Haaz Sleiman) and his Senegalese girlfriend Zainab (Danai Gurira). He ultimately allows
them to stay, but soon Tarek is arrested by the police. Then Tarek’s beautiful mother appears on the scene… A film about different people joined together in a surrogate family.
