A young couple has moved to Berlin and is trying to create a decent living in Süheyla Schwenks’ compact yet grand feature debut.

They live with Haruns’ uncle waiting for a residence permit and better conditions to find something of their own. They live with Haruns’ uncle waiting for a residence permit and better conditions to find something of their own. Jiyan contains scenes of both love and despair that really grabs hold of you. It’s a film that relentlessly takes ordinary people’s party in an unforgiving game against inhumane social structures.
– Daniel Tollefsen Altamirano
