After he stows away on a cargo ship leaving Turkey, Ramin unexpectedly ends up in Veracruz, Mexico. Having escaped persecution as a young gay man in Iran, his home country, he suddenly finds himself far from everything he knows, experiencing the limbo of exile in a tropical port where his past and future are constantly confronting new relationships and rekindled desires. Ramin tries to cope with the distance from his lover, who stayed in Tehran. The paradox of his feelings is immense: while in a state of longing and nostalgia, he savors his newfound freedom far from Iran.
