Xhafer, a Kosovo-born pharmaceutical engineer, has lived in Germany for a number of years. Although now settled with a family and a good job, he gets the creeping feeling that he is being discriminated against because of his ethnic background. A dead rat hanging from the gate in front of his home only confirms his suspicions… Masterfully directed, this oppressive drama about paranoia and identity is the second offering from Visar Morina, whose debut Babai (Father) won Best Director at KVIFF 2015.
