Mina, a young Kurdish woman, flees from Syria after her neighborhood was attacked by the military and her husband was seriously injured.

Having arrived in Berlin, she begins to build up a new life in illegality. She regularly sends money to her family to finance the medical treatment of her husband. The Syrian security service tracks her money transfers and finally discovers Mina; through intimidation and extortion, she is forced to work as informant.

By and by, Mina gains the trust of the Syrian oppositionists and uses this to pass on information about the Syrian opposition to their commanding officers.

A dark and fascinating film picturing the life of Kurdish refugees in Germany, marked by betrayal, collaboration and violence.
