Oray (Zejhun Demirov) is a German Muslim living in Hagen, attempting to leave the misadventures of his youth behind. He finds solace in his marriage to Burcu (Deniz Orta) and more in his faith. A row with Burcu leads to Oray impulsively repeat the word talaq three times, which by Islamic law invokes a divorce. Advised by an imam to take time away, Oray moves to Cologne, where ingratiating himself with the local community leads to further angst. Featuring a cast of promising young talent and non-professional actors, Mehmet Akif Büyükatalay’s assured debut feature addresses complex issues of faith, love and identity with a refreshing lightness of touch.
