In this winning semi-autobiographical romantic comedy, filmmaker Phaim Bhuiyan plays Phaim, an awkwardly charming 22-year-old Muslim musician of Bangladeshi origins. While living with his family in Rome’s diverse Torpignattara neighborhood, he falls for Asia, a spirited, impulsive Italian girl he meets at a gig. How can Phaim find a way to reconcile his desire for her with his religion’s prohibition against sex outside of marriage?
