The film is about a man who came to Sweden from Lebanon as a 17-year old and ended up in Lycksele. During the first years in Sweden he worked so hard to become Swedish that he almost lost his roots altogether. Eventually he noticed how he never felt completely Swedish, and at the same time not 100% Lebanese either. He felt he ended up in between.
