ESRA leads two parallel lives. In her worldly life as a Turkish Berliner in a re-united city, the vivacious and spirited Esra adores her family but feels caged in her relationships and languishes in her job. She clashes with the rules imposed on her and continually feels that something is missing, something is wrong, and there must be something more. In her dream life she yearns to discover the identity of the familiar man who visits her dreams and makes her feel whole. Yet the more she attempts to comprehend her dreams, the more deeply they influence her life. While in waking life she struggles in vain, in her dream life she evolves in secret. But what if waking and dreaming were never separate and the real secret is shared by all? A film inspired by real events...
Or other worlds to explore. Sometimes it's not easy to depict an illness and sometimes it's just how the viewer will take it all in. Because while in a book you can describe things and let the mind of the reader fill in the rest, you do have to put it all on the screen when it comes to film. So while I have no idea what the script looked like and haven't looked on the original material for this, I do know they do a really good job putting all this on screen.
The performances are great too and you do feel for the characters, even when it gets kind of weird and out of place (literally at times). Sometimes it's way too confusing, depending on how much you want to follow it that is, so be ready for that. If you are, the drama value and the character journey is really worth watching this
