Comic film in which the protagonist Ahmed wrestles with his bad marriage. His wife is tired of her miserable and frustrating life with Ahmed and he also suspects her of adultery with a taxi-driver. During a bus journey - after the umpteenth quarrel with his wife - Ahmed's thoughts roam and real events, disrupted memories and fantasy are molten into an absurd life. He is sent by terrorists to Western Europe and has to wait there for a mission. He becomes embroiled in hilarious situations and is confronted with the hated taxi-driver. Cross Fate was shot on location in Rotterdam, Istanbul and Amsterdam.
