Four-year-old Jimmie and his father are forced to leave their home in Sweden. Told from a child's perspective, the story shows fragments of the refugee family trip.

Taking place in several unnamed countries, their journey begins in the north of Europe, and ends at the Mediterranean.

Behind an immense shopping mall in the metropolis of Taipei, an eight-year-old girl plays with her kite at a nightly parking lot.
