In a Turkish enclave in Bremen, patriarchal widower Ali brings home Yeter, a local prostitute, to tend to his domestic needs. Yeter is saving money to finance her daughter Ayten’s college education in Turkey. When Yeter is accidentally killed, Ali’s son Nejat heads to Turkey to find Ayten, who unbeknownst to him, has embarked on her own rebellious journey to Germany. Multi-layered and poignant, THE EDGE OF HEAVEN delves into German-Turkish relations and age-old generational divide. Winner of the Best Screenplay in the Cannes Film Festival 2007. Directed by Fatih Akin (Head-On, Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul).
