Tailor-Made Dreams / Maßgeschneiderte Träume

Isaar, the unique Indian tailor, sets off on an adventurous trip across Europe to his once faithful customers, in hope of new orders, the reunion with old friends and in hope of love.
Marco Wilms accompanies Issar on his trip through European cities, living rooms and mentalities.
This final journey is also Issar’s last chance to fulfill a secret wish: his first role as Bollywood star – in Europe’s first Bollywood documentary!
