Synopsis by Ken Muslimovic and Deanna Fong

 

Set in Southern Turkey, this film spans a day and a half in the life of a 25-year-old musician. His singular, hermetic focus on making his art is in continual tension with a financially and emotionally fraught attachment to his parents. They voice their disappointment in him, offering him unsolicited and contradictory opinions, advice and assistance that, while well-intentioned, reveals the impasse between their values and his own. The musician is alienated from his own world; his only respite is a social sphere that is indifferent and self-interested. The landscape of director's home province--Adana and Mersin--is intimately encountered through the musician's gaze, at once starkly realistic and oneiric.
