Movie Info

When a nine-year-old Arab refugee is left stranded in Stockholm following the death of her grandfather, a group of local street kids take her in and fight for her right to remain in Sweden. Left alone on the streets of Stockholm after her grandfather succumbs to a fatal heart attack, young Amina (Beylula Kidane Adgoy) quickly realizes that without a residence permit she could be deported at will by authorities. Thankfully for the frightened lass, friendly neighbor Mirre (Embla Hjulström) hatches a clever plan to keep her gal pal around by housing her with hard-rocking neighbor, Johan (Gustaf Skarsgård). Though at first reluctant to take responsibility for the young refugee, Johan soon develops a close bond with the girl as the neighborhood kids team up to expose a gang of thieves who are stashing stolen goods in a nearby basement. Later, when benevolent social worker Janet (Jennifer Brown) catches wind of Amina's plight, she joins the fight to ensure that she isn't deported while simultaneously falling for the scruffy-but-lovable Johan in the process.
