Two undocumented, Turkish brothers face the challenges of life in New York City together. Green (aka Samet), a recent arrival to the city, wants to make a fresh start in a new place, but Abi, older and battle-worn, has been in the city longer and wants to protect his brother. When a street altercation escalates, Green unwittingly draws police attention to the apartment he shares with his brother and several other undocumented men, putting them all at risk of discovery.
