Langzeitbeobachtung von drei jungen Frauen aus der Türkei, die einen in Deutschland lebenden Mann heiraten und zu ihm ziehen.
A long-term observation on Turkish women migrating to Germany because they marry a Turkish man living there. Once the men’s families have gone to Germany as foreign workers.
A language school in Balıkesir (Turkey) is the starting point for the film. There the women learn German, because only with the proof of German knowledge they get a visa for Germany.
The film accompanies three women of a German course on their way in a new life. It shows how they have lived in Turkey and how difficult their life is in Germany. Not only the language problems stop them from getting to know their new environment.
Happy, in love and looking forward to the future we have got to know the women in Turkey. Later, in Germany they notice, that e.g. her wish to find a job is hardly realizable. When the men’s families came to Germany, there was work for unqualified people, and also the language problems didn’t play an important role. Today this is completely different.
