Haydar Sene, an Alevi Turk, wants to make a better life for himself and his family in Switzerland. To make it to this promised land, where “butter would flow from the udders of your goats and the yogurt would be as firm as ice cream from Maras,” he will have to sell his farm and risk all that is dear to him. Based on true events, Xavier Koller’s Reise der Hoffnung was the 1990 Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Language film.
