Turkish immigrants in Germany in the 1960s. In a humorous way, the true story is told of a Turkish cosmopolitan feminist who follows her husband to the Ruhr area in 1962. Integration as a painful, however, in the final analysis successful process. Just as Latife is celebrating having passed her entrance examination for Istanbul University, her dream of an academic career is also already over. With a heavy heart she follows her husband Burhan to Germany. He takes over a dental practice in Moers, NRW.
