Galėtumėt per vidurį apgyvendint budistus,

jie būtų buferis tarp hinduistų ir sunitų.

It’s not easy to brightly discuss such themes as the migrant crisis which is weighing on Europe during the last few years. However, it looks like this film manages to send the message that the most important thing - from Africa to the Arctic - is to be a human being.

A not-that- lucky entertainer Primus (by Anders Baasmo Christiansen) comes up with a plan how to maintain the family business. He decides to convert his family’s hotel into a refugee reception center, and takes in the first fifty refugees even before the construction works are finished. Thanks to one of the refugees, Abedi (by Olivier Mukata), the first night in the shelter doesn’t turn into a religious war, and Abedi continues to accompany Primus, who apparently is not really sure of what he's into.
