Dir. Aki Kaurismäki, Finland | Germany, 2017, 100 min.

A wry, melancholic comedy which follows two people searching for a place to call home. Displaced Syrian, Khaled seeks refuge in Helsinki. Meanwhile middle-aged salesman Waldemar leaves his wife and job and buys an unprofitable restaurant. After Khaled is denied asylum, the paths of the two men cross, weaving a bittersweet tale of human kindness in the face of official indifference.
