Kenan, Ümit, Murat, Tuncay and Erkan grew up in the Bavarian town Ingolstadt. Most of them were born there. Enjoying the quiet and beauty of it, they nevertheless stood out as Turkish forgeiners. Film director Svenja Klüh follows Murat on his quest to draw a picture of their past and present lives almost 20 years later. Kenan and Ümit stayed in Ingolstadt. They drink or gamble and work in factories as their fathers did. Tuncay and Erkan were deported to Turkey two decades ago. They live in Antalya, a small touristic place in the south of Turkey. They managed to start a new life there. However, being expelled from their homeland is something they didn't overcome.
Time of the Crows, Time of the Khalifs is a film about bygone friendship, liability and choices.
