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.

Ugur Yucel,the giant movie star of Turkish cinema, is very successful in his directorial debut.In his movie,he has very impressively described the different and dramatical stories of two men who had been wounded in the war lasting for nearly 20 years at Southeast region of Turkey.This movie must be accepted as the first movie based on this terrible conflict.This war has affected every individual living in Turkey and everybody have something to say on this war.So in my opinion, Yucel has filled the biggest gap in Turkish cinema with this brilliant movie.Olgun Simsek is acting wonderfully and showing his linguistic ability especially when he is talking in Middle Anatolian accent. I wish many more people to watch this movie and the movie gets all the credits that it deserves..
