Original title: Grammatik
Country: Germany

Handsome Chinese artist QING (25) has been fooling around Hamburg for two years on a language student visa. Due to his poor academic performance, he is about to be deported by the German authorities. Syrian refugee BASSAM (35), who is the best student in the same class, agrees to help Qing prepare for the upcoming exam. Despite cultural conflicts and different lifestyles, the two develop a romantic tension and Qing's German gradually improves. But when they finally make out one night, Bassam suddenly disappears without a trace. Although Qing fails his exam, he realises that his relationship with Bassam is the love he has been looking for. A few years later, Qing studies art in Stockholm. By chance, Qing meets Bassam again when he works in a Chinese restaurant. Both are in tears.
