Storyline

Sadik is one of the rebellious youth who has been politically active as a university student and became a left-wing journalist in the 70's, despite his father's expectations of him becoming an agricultural engineer and taking control of their family farm in an Aegean village. On the dawn of September 12, 1980, when a merciless military coup hits the country, they cannot find access to any hospital or a doctor and his wife dies while giving birth to their only child, Deniz. After a long-lasting period of torture, trials, and jail time, Sadik returns to his village with 7-8 years old Deniz, knowing that it will be hard to correct things with his father, Huseyin. Written by Ali Riza Bolukbasi

One more chance for fathers and sons
17 December 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Give him a room dad, he do not have any else place to go...

Is the best and the most important Turkish movie written and directed by CAGAN IRMAK... He is a wonderful writer and director. Although his young age, he is more successful than other older directors. I recommend everybody to watch this perfect movie!

Actors and actresses were wonderful, time was expressed very well. It is impossible not to be touched and cry after watching the movie.

Developing Turkish movie sector will have a very important affect on European movies especially with the help of this movie.

Cagan Irmak had proved his talent with his previous movie "Mustafa Hakkinda Hersey." I hope more these kind of movies will be created in Turkey and Turkish movie sector will be developed with the help of good quality movies

A PERFECT film surely not to be missed!
