The Turkish filmmaker delivers a slow-burning tale of a tragic love triangle. Left alone with a child urgently in need of surgery, Emine gets a job in an Istanbul garment factory. There she meets Ziya, her husband Cemal’s former boss, who agrees to cover the medical costs. Meanwhile Cemal, back from Romania where he was arrested, gets very jealous and is faced with a dilemma: confronting his old friend or just ignoring the situation. Zeki Demirkubuz delivers a slow-burning tale where passion seethes in the cruel silence of three characters refusing to confront their darkest demons
