Susanne travels to Kenya as a EU representative in order to estimate possible aid for a village that was attacked by terrorists. While the survivors hope for a collaboration on eye-to-eye level, it’s not more than a usual procedure for Susanne. She only realizes the consequences of her behaviour when it’s already too late.

Beaten up by his classmates, Nenad returns home from school with a dirty jacket. His mother then takes his – once white – jacket to the dry cleaner. But as a Romani woman, she is denied service wherever she goes. And a rather trivial errand turns into running the gauntlet, full of rejection and hostility.
