Summary

I Was, I Am, I Will Be

The pilot Marion usually has her life under control, mostly because she is good at keeping feelings away from her. When she is diagnosed with cancer, she does not even tell her partner about it. Instead, she travels to Turkey, where she meets Baran, a much younger Turk who makes his living by prostituting himself for tourists. Unexpectedly and spontaneously, Marion decides to marry Baran in order to give him a better life in Germany. What at first appears to be a selfless good deed, soon reveals the soul and emotional life of Marion and it turns out that, despite their very different lives, Baran and her are two people meeting at eye level. It is not least this realization that brings a new and unexpected dynamic into the relationship between the two.
