Khaled, a Syrian refugee, stows away on a freighter to Helsinki. Wikström is a traveling salesman who wins big at a poker table and buys himself a restaurant. When the authorities turn down his application for asylum, Khaled is forced underground and Wikström finds him sleeping in the yard behind his restaurant. He offers him a job and a roof over his head and, for a while, they form a Utopian union with the restaurant’s waitress, the chef and his dog.
