dinghy drifts ashore on some forsaken beach. Its passenger is a Sri Lankan boy. Ben, a former Stasi-prisoner, saves and decides to hide him. But nothing escapes the small island community for long and soon the local policeman becomes suspicious. He and Ben used to be on opposite sides of the fence and now, as the fate of a refugee from far away unfolds, their own past catches up with them.
