Auf der Anderen Seite (2007)

The Edge of Heaven portrays the difficulties of east meeting west in the EU through some personal stories in Turkey and Germany.

A Turkic political fugitive flees to Germany and is befriended by a young German student. When the fugitive is deported to Turkey, her friend tries to advocate for her. In a parallel story, the Turkish woman's mother had fled to Germany long ago and formed a relationship in Germany.

The story becomes very melodramatic with some rather awful events happening throughout, but the point is clear: the bond of family and friendship is a powerful one.
