The director of the Cannes-winning 'Winter Sleep' returns with another visually dazzling and probing examination of human relationships.
Sinan returns from his college to his parents' home in a rural Turkish town. While there, he hopes to complete a book of essays and short stories. But concerns over the state of his family – particularly his gambling addict father – and his future leave him wandering the landscape, gripped by his fears. From this simple premise, Ceylan weaves a spellbinding tale that takes a scalpel to the complexities of human affairs.
