A scheming tobacco farmer sets out to ruin his competition by diverting the local water to his own property. A love triangle develops between the farmer, his more decent brother, and the beautiful villager the latter takes as his bride.
Metin Erksan’s Golden Bear-winning melodrama is the first Turkish film ever to win a top prize at a major festival. An intensely stylized, ravishingly sensual tale of violence and greed, Dry Summer portrays the plodding patterns of rural life, and the raging passions that spring from its midst.
