After a misunderstanding, Damien ends up sheltering a young Sudanese exile, Abdo. Their cohabitation had just begun when they guess themselves as homosexual and homophobic respectively. They get to know each other by confronting their respective fears and misguided preconceptions. In an explosive atmosphere, each intimately discovers "the other", walking the thin line between the enemy and the fellow being.
