Xhafer, a Kosovo-born 45-year-old pharmaceutical engineer, lives and works in Germany. His concern over the hints of racial discrimination by his colleagues soon turns into panic, as he finds a dead rat hanging from his home entrance. As he grows suspicious of everyone and everything around him, the thin line between reality and imagination keeps blurring day by day. A somber and surreal thriller that explores the notions of identity and expatriation, delving into the abyss of paranoia.
