In a Turkish enclave in Bremen, patriarchal widower Ali brings home Yeter, a local prostitute, to tend to his domestic needs. Yeter is saving money to finance her daughter Aytens college education in Turkey.
When Yeter is accidentally killed, Alis son Nejat heads to Turkey to find Ayten, who unbeknownst to him, has embarked on her own rebellious journey to Germany. Multi-layered and poignant, The Edge Of Heaven delves into German-Turkish relations and age-old generational divide.
This film was proposed by the director, Gaia Saitta, for the common theme of his show Je crois que dehors c’est le printemps (16 > 26.11.2022).
