Fiendship, embarking on life and searching for one’s roots are key issues in Student Oscar®-winner Ilker Çatak's feature film which is based on Finn-Ole Heinrich’s eponymous debut novel.
Janik has parents who always do everything right, while Samuel comes from a broken home. Janik’s parents may have practically adopted Samuel, but he still shields his alcoholic mother from the outside world. Samuel wants order, Janik wants chaos. Then, in a thoughtless moment, Janik does something inexcusable and the close bond between the friends is put in jeopardy. As they set off on their long-planned trip to Istanbul, the boys are looking to save their friendship, enjoy their freedom and try out a new life.© Dominik Hatt
