Foreign trailer for When We Leave, which screened at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.

No longer able to stand her husband's ill-treatment, Umay flees from Istanbul with her five-year-old son Cem to seek shelter in the arms of her family living in Berlin. But as the reality of Umay's defiant actions sets in, the family's reputation within the Turkish community at home and abroad is threatened—resulting in her sister's engagement being rescinded and ultimately leaving little Cem's future in question. Love, affection, and loyalty soon become irrelevant as a once caring and close-knit family painstakingly struggle to reconcile Umay's willful self-determination with the patriarchal social system that governs their lives.
