He does not say goodbye to anyone. He parties one last time, as if tomorrow never comes and the next day - he disappears. Yunes (Navid Akhavan) was born in Yemen, he is 22 years old and studies process engineering in Berlin. Chris (Antonio Wannek), his German flatmate, is starting to worry. He remembers their friendship: how they met at the turkish farmer's market, the careful approach of two different cultures, the conversations about women, the wonderful times with Julia and Nora...in times of crisis the two friends were always there for eachother. So Chris decides to look for Yunes. His parents in Yemen have not heard from him, neither has his ex-girlfriend. He has not been in touch with anyone. Yunes Islam-group has split up.
No sign of life...and then September 11, 2001.
