Soundtrack for the motion picture 'Ummah – Unter Freunden'

To be among friends usually means to pass a happy time without worries. But Daniel (Frederick Lau) has worries galore. He has to go underground for a few months after his mission as an undercover agent went awry.

When starting a new life in Berlin-Neukölln he accidentally meets Abbas (Kida Khodr Ramadan) – and, with him, the warmth and generosity of an entire culture. Despite clichés and prejudices, the two men befriend each other, and Daniel sinks deeper and deeper into the world of Islam – a process that results in consequences when his former life catches up with him.

So how will we work in the future? Director Natasa von Kopp follows up on those and associated questions about the future of work for German TV station SWR.
