Oray pronounces in a quarrel with his wife Burcu three times ‘talaq’, the islamic formula for repudiation. The imam of his hometown community informs him about the consequences: Oray has to split up with her for three months. He takes advantage of the forced break and moves to Cologne to establish a new life for Burcu and himself. But the Imam of his new community, Bilal, holds a more austere opinion towards the islamic law, which implies that he has to divorce his wife. Now Oray has to make a decision: Should he stay with his wife or with the new community?
