Ender and Cetin, two men in their late thirties, have been close friends since high school. After being away for many years, Cetin returns to Ankara, moves in with Ender, and as such, the two realize their childhood dream, until they both fall for the same woman.
Adapted from Barış Bıçakçı’s critically hailed novel, Our Grand Despair puts a fresh spin on a platonic love triangle, charmingly depicting moments of rapture and melancholy. Set in a hauntingly beautiful Ankara, Seyfi Teoman’s swan song is a soul-stirring portrait of a complex male bond.
