The Turtle's Rage (Schildkrötenwut)

‘We will not return. We cannot. Where would we return to?’

When director Pary El-Qalqili was twelve years old, her father left his family in Berlin and returned to Palestine. Years later, he turned up on the doorstep, and now lives in the basement of the family home, lonely, withdrawn and filled with rage. In this tender and sorrowful film, the two travel to meet family members spread all over the Middle East, and a daughter strives to understand her father.
