Summary
The underside of the German "economic miracle" is portrayed in this poignant story of refugees living on the edge of deportation. The film's hero is a young Pakistani named Shezad who lives in Hamburg, an inhospitable city of welfare hotels, con men and vigilant immigration authorities. Finding a job in the kitchen of a second-rate Chinese restaurant, he befriends an Asian waiter named Xiao. Pooling their resources, they attempt to open up a restaurant of their own.
