A brother and sister flee Afghanistan to become asylum seekers in Ireland, but instead of refuge they are met with Direct Provision — Ireland's inhumane system of endless incarceration. Banned from working or even cooking their own meals, Kazim and Leila struggle with isolation and the limbo of uncertainty. With the help of their Irish friend Andrea, they fight to end DP for good.
