Me and my BMW, me and my business, me and my wife … occasionally, hapless Hamburg street dealer Ali sends a well-posed polaroid back home to Turkey. So what if his friends scoff – as long as his family’s far away, they’re easy to satisfy … Until one day his parents announce their forth-coming visit to „see everything with their own eyes.“
Ali’s left with precisely one day to turn into a rich man. Three Turkish tailors, of all people, offer to solve his problem. Now Ali has to be brave, or rather, tough – and clever on top: Does a suitcase full of bank notes mean all’s well that ends well?
