In 1964, Huseyin leaves his native Turkey in order to create a better life for his family in Germany. Nearly 50 years later, the patriarch insists on a group road trip back to the motherland. This colorful, family-friendly look at the amorphous world of cultural identity tackles the immigrant experience with a richly deserved warmth and humanity. Director Yasemin Samdereli expertly cuts between past and present, pulling at your heartstrings and making you laugh out loud in equal doses, as she shows that no matter how the world changes, the question of what determines who you are remains ageless.
