A black comedy - an Iraqi refugee
comes to London in search of his dream...
Salim, an Iraqi refugee, takes on a new identity in London after fleeing persecution in Baghdad. He is picked up and marries a wealthy older woman, who enthusiastically coaches him in the bedroom for his forthcoming citizenship test. But Carlos Fuentes finds that knowing the names of all six of Henry VIII's wives can neither satisfy his new wife nor turn him into a 'Britishman'. The nightmare of the violence of his past catches up with him and suddenly he is at the airport, accompanied by a G4 security guard, waiting for a plane to take him back to Iraq.
