Die Schrift des Freundes
The software specialist Anna Margotti, who has been commissioned by the Ministry of the Interior to develop a program for compilating data on potentially dangerous minority ethnic groups, falls in love with the turkish Alivi and calligrapher, Hikmet Ayverdi. Through him she becomes acquainted with the traditions and customs of the Alivi, an Anatolian community which sees itself as an alternative model no nationalism and Islamism. One day, Hikmet dis- apperas without a trace. Confounded, Anna starts investigating the matter.
