Ali: Fear Eats The Soul

Ali: Fear Eats The Soul

Ali is a Moroccan Gastarbeiter in his late thirties and Emmi is a 60-year-old widowed cleaning woman. They meet when Emmi ducks inside a bar, driven by the rain and drawn by the exotic Arabic music she says she has heard so often on her walk home from work. A woman in the bar who is part of Ali's Arabic-speaking cohort tauntingly suggests Ali ask Emmi to dance, and Emmi accepts. A strange and unlikely friendship develops, then a romance and soon they are living together in Emmi's flat.
