Yazi Tura (Toss Up) is the film of two stories taking place in 1999. Stories of two young men... One is "Ridvan the Devil", a young football player from Central Anatolia, Cappadocia / Goreme, and the "Cevher the Ghost", a young man who is living with his father in Istanbul. Both went to the army together, and fought in the Eastern Anatolia. Both had dreams and expectations for their civil lives back home. After their military service Ridvan goes back to his village with his right leg missing, the leg that he would score goals with, due to a mine explotion. Neither his fiancée nor his friends treat him the way before. What Ridvan has been through during the war actually brings him down with time. In the same mine explosion Cevher also lost his hearing ability of his right ear, but he is going to go through a greater change after he rescues his father from the wreckage of the Marmara Earthquake.

If you want something 'real' but besides, something 'cinema'; you are at the right place...
It is a brief lesson on our lifes I guess written by Ugur Yücel, and taught through the beautiful acting performances of Turkey's greatest screen figures in a such a great atmosphere(classroom let's say)Real Turkish cinema, real creativity I must say, such a masterpiece that could make me push the all former Hollywood big-shots which are imposed in our minds for ages ,to the other side.(Not that I have a thing about them,I adore American Cinema)A title that any HUMAN BEING must watch. And I can not end my comment without an inquiry about cinema and what people understand from cinema in my country.I, right now, condemn any sort of Turkish illiterated and unthoughtful acts done within this site and much worse indeed, on the streets and at the widely accepted columns of our newspapers in this country and go on to walk on my path to encourage and support those few people who really devote their lifes on this kind of arts-creation.They do not shoot sketches and name it CINEMA, they do not exploit our deepest feeling through out the things our people have been up to, they do not shoot re-makes with old-clowns and a bunch of weird so called actor-comedianish people.They just create...For themselves, and for us,or at least for the ones who just think like us...Thank You Mr. Ugur Yücel... P.S. : I call everyone of you people, to continue watching movies like this,paying attention into them, discussing them in public and buying it's DvDs and stuff...This will be greatest way to support them and raise their value.Both domestically and internationally in every way...Because it is way better than to ORGANIZE PEOPLE TO VOTE THIS MOVIE AND TRY TO MAKE IT TOP 10 OR SOMETHING in this web-site.Those kind of (above-mentioned) contributions will encourage those man to shoot better ones and make our 'values' TOP-TOP-TOP 10 in the big picture.Thank you...
