Naomi Krauss plays a stressed-out woman in the German comedy Faraway. She jumps at the first chance to escape her hectic life, even briefly. Or possibly permanently. She had to flee her rude, demanding, and arrogant family and go to a stunning location that would make postcards from dream vacations appear like advertisements for the nearby landfill. So, will this entry in the rom-com genre’s Woman Need a New Life subgenre to provide us with a unique narrative or the same old clichés? Her father (Verdat Erincin) is a haughty, arrogant old coot. Also, her adolescent daughter Via (Bahar Balci) is how teenagers are by nature. Zey is sad, to put it simply.

Zey (Naomi Krauss) feels neglect from her husband (Adnan Maral) and children. After her mother passed away, Zeynep believed she needed time because her family had not provided any assistance. She takes off for a Croatian island where her mother was born. Zeynep would inherit a house she left to her.
Zey is encircled by jackasses who also happen to be her family—but don’t worry—they’ll come around in this kind of movie, especially given how jerkish they are being on the day of her mother’s funeral, with no one giving her even a tiny bit of leeway. You may argue that they should also be in grief. That would make sense in a movie of this nature. Nonetheless, at least it’s pleasant. Anyway. Ilyas (Adnan Maral), Zey’s husband, is having too much fun joking and chopping vegetables with the new female employee at his Turkish restaurant to make it to the burial in time.
Zey is the perfect candidate for Calgon to remove. And it’s not Calgon that accomplishes this; instead, a deus ex machina in the guise of a plot development in which Zey finds out she has just inherited her mother’s hidden cottage in Croatia. She doesn’t even pack her bags before she jumps in the car and GTFOs from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Germany to the anti-bustle of a sunny beach location, where she’ll almost get run over by a herd of sheep. At the same time, the locals sip milk straight from the goat.
Nevertheless, before that occurs, she enters the cottage in the dead of night. She gropes through the door to the bed and gets up next to a guy called Josip (Goran Bogdan). He sleeps with his butt out fully outside. In the same way, his other rubbish. She then gets teased about her Spanx. It turned out that Zey’s mother had purchased the land from Josip’s family. She had informed him it was alright to use it until a new owner made a claim.
In the meantime, Zey travels into town to the shop where Josip works. Then she goes to the restaurant where Josip works, where he sets up a tent because he still owns that plot of land. She can’t get away from the man. At first, she wants to because of their arguments and annoyance with one another, but perhaps in the end, she doesn’t. You are aware of the course of events.
