It follows the story of a man under the alias Amin Nawabi, who shares his hidden past of fleeing his home country of Afghanistan to Denmark for the first time. When he arrived, he was an unaccompanied minor. Over 20 years later, the secret he’s been hiding threatens to ruin the life he’s build for himself as a successful academic.
