As their worlds fall apart, an unlikely connection occurs between a Rwandan refugee living in New Zealand and his mentally unstable neighbour.
Amadi, a recently resettled refugee from Rwanda is in constant dispute with his mentally unstable neighbour who insists on cluttering the hallway of their building with her possessions. A mutual prejudice exists between them. But when they observe each other more closely, they grow to realise their life experiences are not all that dissimilar from one another. They have suffered loneliness, tragedy and together experience painful separation from family.
