Unexpected journey







17-year-old Kamal is fed up with his home country and stepfamily. He decides to travel to his parents’ roots in Nairobi and tell Finland to go to hell. In Nairobi lives Kamal’s long-missed real father, with whom he plans to start a new life. But Kamal soon finds himself on the road, as the unlicensed driver of a stolen car. To make matters worse, his only travel companion is the annoying old man from next door who thinks every dark-skinned person in Finland is a Somali. Could these two possibly form an unlikely friendship?
