Storyline

After fainting in a school rehearsal, little Su is diagnosed with leukemia. As a result she is forced to give up the Snow White role she wanted so badly. Police Chief Cemil decides to stage the production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at his oppressive police station. He hopes to win a TV competition in order to save his dying daughter . The directorial duties are assumed by drug dealer Tatu who claims to have been a star in his youth. Prince Charming is played by a drug addict, homeless kids play the dwarfs, and a hooker plays the Queen. As the rehearsals go on at the police station, Cemil tries to hide the hostile environment of the police station from her daughter causing a series of tragicomic events like the arrival of U.N. delegates who mistake the rehearsal for a rehabilitation program.

cool movie
3 January 2009 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I don't think Sinan Çetin is like a commercial director. He is the best director among turkeys other director. Movie is really cool because of actors who are Kadir Inanir and Okan Bayulgen.. There is a tough police chief. His girl likes theater and his father is tough like him as well.girl is diagnosed with incurable disease on in other word leukemia. the only thing that connects to her to life is theater. Afther this, police chief wants to make her dream come true and take radical decisions in the police station. he turns police station into theater.they prepare for the competition. Bye the way there are people who police chief took under surveillance they are mafia leader , homeless, drug dealer and prostitute. these people are player of this theater game.. I MEAN WATCH THIS MOVIE AND IF YOU Don't Turkish FIND English SUBTITLE...
