Umay is a young woman of Turkish descent, fighting for an independent and self-determined life in Germany against the resistance of her family. Her struggle initiates a dynamic, which results in a life-threatening situation. This story might seem like a familiar one, often reported in the newspapers. However, director, producer and scriptwriter Feo Aladag has managed to create a multi-layered and poignant portrait of a family, far removed from the typical clichés, with her breathtaking cinematic debut “When We Leave” (Die Fremde).
