The film is also known as F.O.U. in Sweden (promotional abbreviation).

This is the story of Amina, a girl from Sierra Leone seeking asylum in Sweden. The second key figure in the story is Headbanger Johan, played by Gustaf Skarsgård. The film is about how their paths cross - a meeting that will change both their lives forever.
