Ertan, a hardened, aggressive young man was sentenced to jail for second-degree murder. When he was released from jail 10 years later at 35, his prison experience turned him into a broken man. At 15, Mikail quit his apprenticeship and spent his time hanging out with friends and saving for his own Rap tape. Ertan looks for Mikail. Mikail has no clue who Ertan is. How do they both deal with hard realities when Mikail learns the truth?
Pessimistic view on the parallel lives of an ex-convict versus an upcoming criminal. Very good drama with believable protagonists
I saw this film at the Film Fest Ghent 2014, where it was programmed as part of the Global Cinema section. We follow two people involved in criminal activities (one ex-con, one upcoming), and see from very nearby how difficult it can be to sever yourself from non-honest ways of earning money. The ex-con makes every attempt to stay clean. The upcoming criminal, on the other hand, gets deeper and deeper in trouble with towering debts while he invests all his money in making a demo tape, eventually seeing no way out other than a criminal path forward. Believable protagonists all around. Also believable side roles that add enough color to the proceedings to keep our interest.
