Abstract:

While in Amsterdam, Zeki, a gay singer from Turkey, receives the news that his colleague Mahmut has died in Hamburg. Zeki goes to the funeral and suddenly finds himself encumbered with Senay, the deceased’s daughter. He wants to bring the 11-year-old girl to Cicek, who is apparently an aunt of hers – but who’s actually Senay’s mother. The journey takes them from Hamburg to Paris to the south of Germany and then all the way to Istanbul. With TOUR ABROAD, Ayse Polat sheds an unprecedented critical light on Turkish life in central Europe.
