Synopsis:

15-year-old Wojtek travels to Sweden from Poland with his parents to work on a farm picking strawberries. He encounters a dark underworld where foreign guest workers are exploited by indifferent Swedes. But against all odds he forms a connection with the farmer’s daughter, Anneli. The teenagers start to meet behind the backs of their parents, their young love breaking down the invisible barrier that exists between them. But the outside world will never accept the relationship, and in the end the two young lovers find themselves trapped on opposite sides when the slowly brewing conflict between the Swedes and the guest workers erupts in a sudden violent confrontation.
