    • Ramin Mehdipour (13) is enjoying a perfect summer in a small Finnish town, just like any boy his age. His world revolves around family, friends and the nature all around him, and in a few weeks he’s about to enter an entirely new school, junior high. The Mehdipour family has applied for asylum, but the Finnish Immigration Service has made a negative decision on their application. This fractures the lives of Ramin and his family, but the school year is about to start and life must go on. The Mehdipours use their last chance to appeal but continue their everyday lives, fuelled by their exceptionally positive outlook and attitude. Ramin is on the verge of innocence and adulthood, about to bid farewell to his childhood as he looks for his own voice and personal way of greeting life.
