Presented by Nuri Bilge Ceylan.

Sinan, an aspiring writer, returns home after university hoping to scrape together enough money to publish his first novel. Struggling to reorient himself within his family, Sinan must re-enter a difficult relationship with his father, while reconnecting with old friends and lovers. In the words of Eurico Barros, "Only a great director can take a situation as banal, as commonplace as a kiss between a man and a woman under a tree branch shaken by the wind, and film it as if it were new. The Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan does this (...) while reiterating his visual talent, his sense of the unprecedented image and his breathtaking plastic beauty, combined with his ability to convey feelings and moods through the landscape and the elements."
