The children of Rafet

The film is about Rafet (65) and four uneducated immigrants, who are now in their 30s, whom Rafet has educated for around 7 years about philosophy, psychology, politics and arts. It will include the pasts, presents and also the futures of those 5 characters that are living in Berlin. By doing this, the audience will have the chance to follow how they have changed/developed in time. They all live alone and have had problematic relationships with their parents. So, the fatherhood of Rafet to them will be the main core of the film because after so long of education period, some of them began to see Rafet as a father, an idol or an übermensch (over-person).


So, the film is not only about the idea of fatherhood and 'family', but also it's about integration and immigration in Europe, alienation in a modern world, loneliness and the idea of education, too. 





’68 kuşağı hippilerinden Rafet, Berlin’de 10 yıla yakın süre dört göçmen eğitimsiz çocuğa felsefe, psikoloji, edebiyat ve politika dersleri verir. Bu süreçte hem Rafet’in hayatı, hem de çocukların hayatları büyük değişime uğrar. Rafet artık onlar için sadece bir öğretmen değildir; babadır, annedir, insanüstü bir varlıktır. Film, Beş karakterin sadece karşılıklı eğitim ve öğrenime dayalı dostluğunu konu alıyor. Yurtdışında ailelerinden uzakta yaşayan bu insanlar birbirlerine tutunarak kendilerini geliştirecek, yaşadıkları toplum ile baş edebilmeyi öğrenecekler.
