After Ali accidentally kills a prostitute, his son leaves Germany to search for her adult daughter in Istanbul. Meanwhile, the daughter hides out in Germany to escape the Turkish police. There, she falls in love with Lotte, who desperately tries to rescue her when she is deported back to Turkey.
Winner of more than 30 film awards, including Best Screenplay at Cannes, this is a complex and compelling tale about fractured families, dislocated cultures, and the hope that comes from sacrifice.
