Description by Facets Multi-Media:
In his multiple award-winning debut feature, director Ahmet Ulucay portrays the innocence of childhood and the lure of the cinema for two teens in a small Turkish village. By day, one works for a watermelon seller and the other for a barber. But at night, they devote themselves to rebuilding an old film projector and dream of being famous film directors. At turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, Ulucay's autobiographical film manages to convey universal themes of first love, big aspirations, and the magic of the movies. "Ulucay brings an engaging flavor to the material, aided by an acute sense of period and setting, plus tip-top performances by the whole cast" (Derek Elley, Variety). With Ismail Hakki Taslak, Kadir Kaymaz, Gulayse Erkoc, and Aysel Yilmez.
