Storyline

The film follows what happens inside a lonely and heartbroken man who visits his hometown on the pretext of working there. He looks isolated and indifferent to everything. At the beginning, he walks alone, and he films an extremely desolate landscape, and what the audience sees on the screen also lacks vigor. Such a feeling of ruin reflects the man's inner self. Consequently, the film is filled with sorrow and loneliness. Nevertheless, love and friendship invigorate the film. What is noticeable is the film's strength in describing the man's state of mind in a consistent manner. The last scene, which suggest hope for a new relationship, is also smart and without any exaggeration.
