A teacher has been imprisoned for six months for no apparent reason. One day, he is allowed to meet his wife, but after the visit, the man faces an ethical dilemma.
Hüseyin Karabey’s adaptation of Melih Cevdet Anday’s famous play offers a complex commentary on the psychological effects of confinement. Shot in one location, this claustrophobic political drama focuses on its main character’s inner voice to explore the terrifying echoes of a police state.
