In Minneapolis’ large Somali refugee community, Adan has nowhere to go. As a last resort, he moves into the mosque, praying for a little help. Adan quickly lands a good job, devout friends, but when he rescues a stray dog one of his new mosque friends considers the dog impure, and he throws Adan out. With Adan back on the streets, the dog may be his only friend as he tries to keep his faith and get through the night.
