Trivia

The names of the characters fit their personalities. Cenk means war, Nadir means rare and Alper means hero.

Ismail is also the name of the son of Prophet Ibrahim. In the Kur'an, Ibrahim asks Allah for a son and promises to sacrifice him. Just as he sacrifices Ismail, Allah sends Cebrail and tells him that this was a test and that he passed it. The father and son later built Kabe together. This hints to the character Ismail's relationship with authority in this film.

Beybaba is a name used by children when referring to their fathers. The word is composed of two words; "Bey" and "Baba". Baba means father, and bey is a word used while respectably referring to men in Turkish. See more »

Goofs

In one scene the characters talk about how many times they've watched the movies on the boat over again because there are only 10 of them. Later we see a collection of movies that is significantly more than 10 next to the TV. See more »

If you're a thinker, this film is definitely on your watch list with high(est) priority. If you're not really a thinker, this film might have the power to inspire you to do so anyway.. so be warned!

The timing seems to be perfect; the message it tries to convey is delightfully relevant to the confusing times of today. Tolga Karaçelik had the capacity to see this enabling him to crystallize this vision graciously weaving it into a beautiful form; a film that speaks vividly not only to the eye but also to the mind and emotions of the receiver. You will be challenged!

What do you do if the the root of the problem has grown so thick that it seems impossible to eradicate it without the requirement of suffering and sacrifice? What will it take to inspire, enable us to move forward again when we're stuck, stranded and have no heading?

Tolga Karaçelik has proved himself to be a gifted story teller. His voice strikes true and with strength yet remains grounded in its efficient and charming simplicity.
