Beyto (Burak Ates) has been living in Switzerland ever since his parents (Beren Tuna, Serkan Tastemur) moved here from Turkey when he was a child, and he's well-integrated in society, has mastered the language, is excelling at his apprenticeship, and on the side he's a gifted swimmer who has hopes to compete for team Switzerland in the championships. And then, rather by chance he finds out that his coach Mike (Dimitri Stapfer) is gay - and against all expectations, he feels drawn to him, and vice versa, and the two become a couple. That goes alright for a while, until an aunt (Zeynep Sanli) sees Beyto a the gay pride parade, and is quick to tell it to Beyto's parents. Now they're devastated by the realization their son might be gay, and they trick him into joining them on a trip to their home village in Turkey, where they then expect him to marry Seher (Ecem Aydin), his childhood friend he has long been promised to. Beyto initially wants to hear none of it, but he now finds himself caught between his love for Mike on one side, his responibility towards his family and also Seher, and quite generally tradition on the other. Thing is, he likes Seher, for whom going to Switzerland with him would be a great opportunity, but thinks she deserves somebody who loves her. So ultimately he gives in to marrying her, also because the consequences of him rejecting her would be devastating, and in their wedding night they even have sex. But soon, he just has to come clean with her ...

Back in Switzerland, Beyto finds himself caught between Mike, who doesn't even try to understand his situation, and his family, whose demands towards him become more and more suffocating, so much so that he decides to move to Germany, preferably with both Mike and Seher - but for that to happen, one of the two needs to bend over backwards ...


A very compelling film about the conflict of staying true to oneself vs. tradition, love vs. duty, and one that works quite so well because it doesn't put the focus merely on its themes to hammer its message across, but on very solid storytelling, meaning presenting us with a well-structured narrative with well fleshed out and relatable characters, conflicts that feel real, and a non-judgmental approach to things. And add to this a subtle enough direction and a competent cast, and you've got one touching piece of drama.
