A superb movie about Turkish people who wants to go Germany for better life conditions. They agreed a man for that, but man drive the bus to Stockholm and left them middle of Stockholm. OST from Zulfu Livaneli, great Turkish musician. This is the Drama of Anatolia. You can see what is cultural shock... This movie a part of Tunc Okan's Trilogy about "Gurbetci"(one living away from home. guest worker) (Other films are Cumartesi Cumartesi and Sari Mercedes) Cumartesi Cumartesi about Turkish people abroad, and Sari Mercedes about a people who wants to return Turkey from Europe.
