Navid is 13 years old, born in Iran and has lived in Denmark for the last 5 years as a refugee. His family is stuck in the system as asylum seekers who has been denied permanent residency. At the same time they cannot move back to Iran because of the risk of serious human rights violations and persecution there.
Navid dreams of becoming a chess player in the future, and this film tries to visualize this dream within the closed world of a Danish asylum centre.
