    • Synopsis
    • Jasmine runs the Café Kotti in central Kreuzberg in the heart of Berlin with her East German father Werner and her Turkish step-mother Lila. For a long time, Kreuzberg was considered an undesirable place, but 25 years after the fall of the wall, the boutiques and fancy restaurants are on the doorstep and slowly the neighborhood is changing. Some people associate the latest wave of Syrian immigrants with crime and drug dealing but others, like Werner and Jasmine, hold an open door. When Jasmine breaks up with her German boyfriend to take up with a handsome young Syrian refugee, the division between friends, family and neighbors becomes politically heightened.
