An enigmatic Iranian immigrant relentlessly seduces Danish women but hides his true identity from them cautiously. However, the real reason behind his charming games soon begins to resurface and his true persona slowly comes out when he gets to know a girl he did not expect.
A slow-burning tense psychological drama, this morally elusive film is a unique and engrossing portrait of immigration in our times.
