Violence, hatred and alienation shaped the lives of this Turkish family in Germany. A very personal account of a failed migration and the attempt to start again.
A family who left Romania a long time ago and never quite arrived in Germany. There is a rift between the generations and their memories. An attempt of reconciliation and rapprochement.
