AVRUPA is an eclectic family chronicle about Osman and Cansu Çelik and their four adolescent children who each have to find their own way to adulthood, pulled between a seemingly more communal life in spacious and sunny Turkey and an individual, modern existence in the cramped Netherlands where the sky is always grey.
