When Yeter is accidentally killed, Ali’s son Nejat heads to Turkey to find Ayten, who unbeknownst to him, has embarked on her own rebellious journey to Germany. Multi-layered and poignant, THE EDGE OF HEAVEN delves into German-Turkish relations and age-old generational divide. Winner of the Best Screenplay in the Cannes Film Festival 2007.
