Kosovo-born Xhafer has got used to the fact that hardly anyone in Germany can pronounce his name, even though he has lived there for a long time. The pharmaceutical engineer leads a bourgeois life with his German wife and three children, yet feels increasingly unwelcome at his place of work. When he finds a dead rat hanging on his garden gate one day, it is clear to him that someone is making a racist statement. From that moment on, Xhafer recognises an indiscernible and, thus, unprovable form of mobbing in every word and gesture his work colleagues make. His wife, Nora, on the other hand, is tired of the fact that he sees targeted discrimination behind every single difficulty.
