53rd Karlovy Vary IFF 2018 - Official Competition




Yusuf, who obeyed the family elders' decision and set his sister up for an honour killing, and his brother Ramazan, who committed the murder, meet again after 4 years when Yusuf is discharged on probation from the detention center. As it turns out, the family had turned in Yusuf instead of Ramazan as he was a minor at the time of the murder and could expect a reduced sentence. Coming out of prison, Yusuf ends up marooned at the family-run motorway motel on the highway leading to Iran, where he struggles with his guilty conscience and regret for what he did. Surrounded by the cruelty of traditional morals and religious rules that can turn a child into a murderer, every move he makes is closely observed by his family.

Entering the lives of the two brothers condemned to one another's destinies is a woman, Yasemin, who unwillingly learns about the family secret. As Yusuf and Ramazan try to come to terms with their past and their conscience, Yasemin becomes another threat to the family, just like Yusuf.
