Watch the trailer.


On Monday 11 February, the film will celebrate its world premiere in the German Cinema section (Perspektive Deutsches Kino) at the upcoming Berlin International Film Festival 2019 and will have its market premiere at EFM. The powerful debut feature tells the story of Oray, who is torn between his love of faith and his faith in love. In 2018 the main actor Zejhun Demirov received the Götz George Award as the most promising actor at the German First Steps Awards.


Synopsis: Oray wants to be a better person, get rid of the criminal past, be a good husband and a Muslim. Through the faith and the Muslim community, he seeks the meaning of his life. During a quarrel with his wife he says three times "TALAQ", which, according to the Muslim law, means he has to divorce. Oray goes to Cologne, where he tries to rebuild his life in the new Muslim community. But he is constantly torn between his faith, everyday reality and the love for his wife.
