After the death of his grandfather, the filmmaker flies to Istanbul to film one last time in the rooms where his grandfather lived for over 40 years and translated central works of German literature into Turkish. A living and working space that points beyond its deceased occupant and is filled with memories for the filmmaker. Memories of a life that exemplifies the unknown aspects of the history of Turkish-German relations. A cinematic obituary of the “Turkish voice of Kafka“.
