Farid faces a tough choice: Either tell his grandfather he is terminally ill, or protect him from this harsh fact.

Boxer Farid is told his beloved grandfather - an Iranian former Olympic champion – is terminally ill. It is Farid’s task to bring the bad news to the old man, who does not understand the Dutch doctor. But should he tell him the truth or twist the facts, in the hope this will prolong his grandpa’s life? The film is a result of workshops with youngsters from asylum seekers centres, where they developed stories based on their personal lives.
