Fremde Tochter (Strange Daughter)
Lena (17) meets 19-year-old Farid, a young Muslim. She has a clear-cut attitude towards his culture and religion: utter rejection. Despite their differences - or perhaps because of them - they fall in love. When Lena unexpectedly gets pregnant the two of them must make a pledge to each other and their child. Hannah, Lena's mother, sees red, realizing this means her daughter will be expected to marry a Muslim man - unfathomable both to her and to Farid's family. A couple destined to be together stuck between worlds, traditions, religion, contradictions and prejudices.
