Ali Kemal is a film director living with his parents. When his father refuses to give him money for his hemorrhoids surgery, he tries to shoot a short film while dealing with financial difficulties.
In his debut feature, Ali Kemal Çınar weaves familial frustrations and the travails of moviemaking into a mesmerizingly funny mix, overflowing with passion for cinema. Shot with amateur actors including the director’s family, this is an inventively simple, self-reflexive tale about a creative block.
