Plot: Originally "Unveiled" was titled "Fremde Haut" which means In Orbit -- the term officially used by the UN to refer to asylum-seekers who find themselves orbiting around planet Earth because they can actually find legal domicile nowhere at all.

Fariba, prosecuted in Iran because of her love for a woman, flees to Germany. But her application for asylum is turned down. Her desperate prospects are improved by the suicide of her fellow-inmate, a man named Siamak, who has received a temporary permit of sojourn just before his death. Assuming his identity, she is sent to a refugee camp near a small German village.

At first her survival seems to be assured, but the strain of upholding her male disguise in the cramped refugee quarters reveals the threat that a single mistake could blow her cover. In order to pay for forged documents, Fariba takes an illegal job in a sauerkraut factory, where she meets Anne. The two grow close - indeed dangerously close for Farbia as Anne begins to suspect her true identity.
