Based on a story Fassbinder used in his previous film, The American Soldier, Ali: Fear Eats the Soul is a classic tear-jerker fraught with racial prejudice, anguish and true love. A lonely German widow, Emmi (Brigitte Mira) meets Ali (El Hedi Salem), a Moroccan, twenty years her junior in a pub. They eventually fall in love and marry, much to the chagrin and horror of her friends, family and the community. After a trip to get away, they return home to find everyone's opinions have changed and soon learn that without the prejudice and scorn for their union by others, their relationship is doomed and begins to unravel.
