Middle-aged unmarried loner Nihat works in a hospital canteen. When young colleague Ayşe invites him to her house for dinner, he accepts despite the rumours that her husband Necip is in jail for a serious offence. When Nihat sees a wedding photograph, he notices that Ayşe’s imprisoned husband looks an awful lot like him. The awkward relationship that ensues changes Nihat’s life more profoundly than he could ever have foreseen.
“Identity is a very important issue today in Turkey. To be the other or to be treated as the other is a crucial problem. It is rooted in political and religious considerations and it is a big burden on the country. There is an allegory hidden in the story which viewers can see if they have a critical eye.” (Tayfun Pirselimoğlu)

In the presence of Tayfun Pirselimoğlu (Director), Vildan Erşen (line producer) and Maryam Zaree (lead).
