A Film by Dietrich Brüggemann

Synopsis

A german-turkish gay movie kiss ends up in a funny deadlock of misunderstandings and complications.

Kerem is turkish, and from a conservative family. His sister fell from belief and lives a modern life, so he was ordered to restore the family honor – and kill her. The only problem: Kerem himself is not quite the ideal young muslim. He‘s gay.

Do you think this is a painful cliché? Of course it is. And it‘s only the beginning of a whole series, as it‘s only a film within a film (within a film), where everybody starts out to do a social spot for tolerance and against racism, but end up entangled in all sorts of clichés, counter-clichés and idiosyncrasies of political correctness. A colourful crowd of international folks has to accept that they were only cast to embody that colourful internationality, and a film student who wants to set her mark against some alarming tendencies in our society, has to cope with the fact that her migrant friends have a life of their own. So everything goes wrong, but everything goes on, all players are laughing stock and nice friendly people at the same time – but aren‘t we all?
