  • Basri is a lonely man who seems to be floating in his own life. He watches over the railroads, walking the endless tracks through the abundant landscape of Anatolia. His only son, Seyfi, has been taken into custody 18 years ago and no one has heard from him ever since. After the death of his wife, Basri has slowly isolated himself from society.

  • Many women in the villages of Şanlıurfa, whose husbands or fiancés have emigrated to Germany to work, had to learn basic German in accordance with the new German legislation on unification of families. Women who gathered in village schools, following a few months of language courses and an exam, were supposed to apply for a visa and consequently gain right to family unification.

    However, many of them did not sufficiently know their destination country or husbands very well. While they had not even graduated from elementary school, having quit upon family pressure, the school was a place they would claim “lost on the road.” As such, baffled between Turkish, German and their mother tongue, Kurdish, these women hit an ambiguous road.
