In a very accomplished way, this film tells the story of crossed destinies, in Germany and Turkey, ... More

In a very accomplished way, this film tells the story of crossed destinies, in Germany and Turkey, of men and women from different origins. It sensibly reflects the painful complexity of the loss of one's bearings and relationships, as well as the richness of encounters, crossings and living together and getting these two different worlds united. Other major issues deal with filiation, sacrifice and reconciliation.
