18-year-old Elaha wants to move out. Immediately! She spends her daylight hours fighting with her mom about cleaning up. At night she works in the club to save up to move together with her best friend/co-worker Ina. Mom doesn‘t know and this time dad can‘t help Elaha out. With her quick-wittedness she confronts the endless questions about her origins. It‘s her parents who came from Afghanistan. Not her.
