After 5 years, the great Turkish auteur Nuri Bilge Ceylan returns to the screen with this masterfully character-driven award-winning exploration of power dynamics and the darkest regions of the human soul. In a tight-knit community in the stark landscape of eastern Anatolia that seems to only experience two seasons, a teacher is accused of sexual misconduct. Samet is sitting out his four years mandatory service in a remote village school – he’d rather be in Istanbul – with bad grace and sarcasm. When the authorities find a letter to him written by a pupil with whom he has been friendly, the situation blows out of proportion.
