Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Seventeen years before, Mehmet Umut illegally immigrated from Turkey to Germany. His presence was tolerated there until he became unemployed. Fearing he would apply for welfare, policemen were sent to his apartment to roust him from his bed and have him deported. Much of this drama follows the determined Mehmet as he struggles to sneak back into Germany to get his wife and family. When all legal attempts fail, he decides to go beyond the law.
