Synopsis
„Tur Abdin“ is the name of the motherland of the Aramean Christians in South-East Turkey, not far from the Syrian border. It used to be one of the first settlement area of the Christians, but now the Christians are a small minority here. The most Aramean Christians escaped from war, violence and repression – to Germany as well. Now some exiled Arameans want to return from Göppingen to South-East Turkey to save their
cultural heritage and to rebuild the destroyed villages. We follow them on their way to the motherland and document the struggle for the saving of the millenary old culture.
