A woman and two men become entangled in confusing conversations, constantly talking at cross purposes with one another. İpek Hamzaoğlu’s film breaks open narrative logic as well as common dialogue forms and courses of action, making the characters’ acting seem distanced and disconcerting. A complex satire about television soaps, media culture, and social role models; about the gap between script and reality.
