Francis, 30, has survived his escape from West Africa. As he gets washed up at a beach in Southern Europe, he swears an oath to God: from now on, he wants to be a new, decent man. Soon after he winds up in Berlin, Francis realizes how hard it is to be righteous when you are an illegal refugee. When he receives an enticing offer from the charismatic yet neurotic, sex-addicted German, Reinhold, Francis initially resists the temptation, maintains his oath and stays away from Reinhold’s shady dealings. Unfortunately, he is inevitably sucked into Berlin’s underworld and his life spirals out of control.
