The setting is a fictional Scottish island (filming took place on the Uists) where a group of asylum seekers have been sent, whilst they await a decision on whether or not they can stay. They are mostly adult men, without their families, and from Syria and other countries too. Living in a hostel, and forbidden to work, all they can do is wait.
Among the group is an Afghan Freddy Mercury superfan, quarrelling brothers from Nigeria and – most poignantly – Omar from Syria. Omar is a hugely gifted musician who is filled with rage and guilt for leaving his homeland. Though desperation sets in, the men find a bond in the strangeness of their situation.
