On sufferance tells the story of a romanie family who has been living in Germany for 15 years with the residence permit status of being tolerated. Hajrije, the single parent mother, is 42 years old. She lives with her 3 kids Arduan (16 years old), Ramize (14 years old), Bobby (12 years old), her grandniece Melissa (7 years old) and Mee (Arduan's girlfriend) in the problem district Stuttgart Fasanenhof. Indeed, the life in Germany might offer a certain security for the romanie family concerning racist assaults; nevertheless, is not easy for the Husenis to manage their everyday life. Because of their residence permit status they can be deported to the Kosovo at every time. Efforts to get a stay permit seem to be hopeless after 15 years of trying. Especially the younger family members worry how the life of the family will go on and what could be done to get another chance to stay in Germany.
