The drama tells the story of young Afghani woman Fereshteh, who arrives in Serbia as a refugee with her husband, Reza, and their three little children, only to find out that her younger brother Ali, who came to Belgrade a few weeks before, has drowned and will soon be buried as an NN person.
Fereshteh refuses to leave Belgrade before burying her brother under his proper name, and in order to get the permit to take charge of the body, she initiates a complex and uncertain procedure to prove her brother's identity through a DNA sample from her deeply traditional father, who is still in Afghanistan.
