A Christian asylum caretaker in Vienna who cares about obeying the rules more than anything else is put to the test by a rebellious refugee. / In a remote, provinical Austrian town four rowdy teenaged friends establish an escort organisation to protect young women from the allegedly wicked asylum seekers and thus only cause more trouble. / An art professor adopts an unaccompanied underaged refugee and misunderstands the boundaries between assistance and forced assimilation. / A young volunteer travels to Greece with the hope of helping and changing something, but soon comes to realise that what she can do is nothing more than a drop in the ocean.
A film told from the perspective of four Austrians with different attitudes towards the "refugee crisis".
