Tragicomic and suspenseful, @i:Ein Augenblick Freiheit:i@ traces the odyssey of three groups of Iranian Kurd refugees. On the way to their hoped-for freedom they get stranded in an uninviting hotel in Ankara. The first moments of unutterable relief are all too brief. What follows is a gruelling wait, an emotional roller coaster ride between hope and disappointment. If the asylum application is refused, deportation follows, delivering some to certain death.
