Loss, sacrifice and commitment go hand in hand in this metaphorical film about a stranger, who comes to the Netherlands to marry a Dutch-Kurdish woman.
He literally falls from the sky. Azad, a young man carrying a little lamb in a suitcase, on his way to a new life: a wedding with a Dutch-Kurdish woman. The road to this wedding is an absurd, surprising and poetic one, with the young bloke being afflicted by all sorts of unexpected setbacks. What does he give up by coming over here and what does he gain by marrying a woman he has never met? In this allegorical film, the search for a better life is visualised in an intense way.
