IM ROSENGARTEN

IN THE ROSE GARDEN

Berlin rap star Yak (38), plagued by a crisis of meaning at the height of his career, receives an unexpected message: his almost forgotten father, who returned head over heels to his home country of Syria over 30 years ago, is lying in a coma in a hospital in Cologne – and has brought Yak a surprise: a 15-year-old half-sister called Latifa, who only speaks Arabic. Unwillingly reunited, the siblings embark on an odyssey across Germany. The journey becomes a search for one’s own roots, the meaning of (folk) music; and the answer to the question of all questions: what does “home“ really mean?
