When We Leave

Showing at the Tribeca Film Festival: When We Leave, directed by Feo Aladag

Synopsis from the TFF website:

When young Turkish-German woman Umay can no longer stand her husband's ill-treatment, she flees from Istanbul with her five-year-old son into the arms of her family in Berlin. But love, affection, and loyalty soon become irrelevant as they struggle to reconcile Umay's willful self-determination with the social system that governs their lives. This passion piece on female flight from oppression builds its considerable dramatic intensity to a glowing payoff.

The movie's website is only in German, for now.
