Turin, Italy. Rajeev, an Indian guy who sells roses on the road, secretly loves Fadwa, an Arab girl who works in a pizza shop. When Rajeev receives a letter from Madras by his parents, he decides to declare his love to Fadwa, disobeying to the wedding arranged by his mother. The Arab girl reciprocates that feeling, but her brother opposes violently to that dream of love.
