Emanuel's identity is unknown, and his life has been put on hold for eight years. He came as a war refugee to Norway in 2003, claiming to be from Liberia, but the Norwegian authorities believes he's from Ghana, and has sent him back there twice. Ghana has sent him back, due to him not being Ganese. He can't be returned to a country he's not registered in, and is in limbo. The documentary tries to find who Emanuel really is, going behind the authorities, police, laws, contacting friends and neighbors - all gathering a picture of the main question: Who is Emanuel?
