ICH LIEBE DICH is a story of love … and of waiting.
For years the men of southeastern Turkey have gone to Germany for work. Some of them are away for a long time. Others try hard to have their wives and children join them. It takes more than money.
There is a new obstacle for women to rejoin their husbands. German legislation in 2008 obliges wives to have 'basic German competence' before they can get permission to stay in Germany. The film follows different woman in Hacilar, who are taking a German course. Each of them face challenges.
