INTERSECTING LIVES, INTERCROSSING WORLDS AND THE HEAVY BURDEN OF EXISTENCE BROUGHT BY THE STRUGGLE OF LIVING CAN ONLY BE BORNE BY DREAMING GAMES. This last feature by veteran director Yavuz Özkan deals with the ways of an introvert father burnt by the troubles of making a living, his worn-out family, and the regulars of the father's restaurant deal with their troubles. The lives of each character intersects with another. Each one's life crosses through another one's life. But in essence, they are all looking for the same thing.
