Summary
Yusuf, laid off when the factory in his economically depressed village closes, decides to board a bus for Istanbul and stay at the home of his urbanite cousin, a successful and cosmopolitan art photographer named Mahmut. Yusef dreams of working on freighters, an exotic life of global travel far from his bucolic, insular village. Mahmut, divorced, forty-something, intensely private and self-consumed, grows increasingly resentful and impatient over his aimless and naïve cousin's unformed plans. He begins picking fights with Yusef for breaking the house rules during his brief absences. An elegantly realized, pensive, and hauntingly lucid exposition on the unarticulated desolation of self-imposed urban alienation, rootlessness, estrangement, and solitude
