Musa, a detached and reserved customs clerk who lives quietly with his mother. Tragedy and change come for him, as they do for everyone, and he seems to fail to react to anything that is happening to him.
A loose, contemporary adaptation of Albert Camus’ The Stranger, Zeki Demirkubuz’s Fate portrays a young man’s confrontation with life’s absurdities. Featuring a Bressonian, apathetic antihero as the lead character, this is the perfect start for Demirkubuz’s acclaimed Tales of Darkness trilogy.
