Isaac, an African student, gets infiltrated with a group of other illegal immigrants through the Austrian border. Two policemen find this out, runs after them and eventually manage to catch Isaac. They are ordered to send them back to Accra, in Ghana. As Isaac tries everything not to be brought back to Africa, a very rude incident happens in the plane and reveals the violent racism of one of the policemen. Once in Accra, the local authorities will seek revenge against the two agents by making them wait for a visa and a check of their immigration papers. Stucked in the African capital for few days with no papers and very little money, the two agents have to deal with the local culture.
