Directed by Murat Düzgünoğlu, (2018, 104 min.). Digital.

Returning home to Adana to help his mother with the orange harvest, Mahir meets an unexpected guest: Halef, who believes he is the reincarnation of Mahir’s long-dead older brother.
Although Mahir tries to keep his distance, events conspire to bring them together, and details given by Halef about their childhood confuse Mahir even further. In a world that is surrounded by mysticism, dervish convents, and healing stones, this is the story of two brothers who follow contrasting trajectories as they lose their bearings in life. And it ends where it all began.
