A sexually-explicit drama about second-generation Turkish immigrants in Germany, HEAD ON is an exploration of love and anguish in culturally-repressive worlds. Numbed by drugs, alcohol and a deep depression, Cahit drives his car into a wall. In the hospital he meets Sibel, a beautiful young Muslim girl who attempted suicide to escape from her conservative family. Bound by their shared heritage, and desperate to change their lives, Cahit and Sibel devise a plan to live together in a marriage of convenience. Having tasted freedom, Sibel begins a series of one-night-stands while Cahit continues an occasional fling with an ex-girlfriend. Gradually they begin to fall in love, until an explosion of jealousy sends Cahit to jail and Sibel to Turkey – both vowing eternal fidelity.
