In 1970, Kosovar Albanian Ismajl »Smajl« Hoxhaj only came to Germany to buy a tape recorder. But it is only now — more than 40 years later — that he left Germany to go back to Kosovo as a pensioner. In the meantime, he has bought many tape recorders, started a family and, as a political activist, fought passionately for the independence of Kosovo far from his actual home.
The documentary tells the story of Smajl.
 A story of homesickness and home, of conflicts with his children and the dream of a patriot.

It is the story of a migrant worker in Germany.
