Erdem, Sevil and their children Edip and Sevgi live in a small town. Their lives begin to change when they have to move to Istanbul because Sevil's mother has had a stroke. Ten years pass and by this time Edip is at a boarding school away from the family and Erdem is still pursuing the dream he's always had of becoming a good writer. Sevil is aware that Sevgi's behaviour has suddenly changed, that she's become introverted and unhappy, so she sets about to find out what the trouble is. She discovers that their family has some dark secrets hidden behind closed doors.
Born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1978, Ilksen Basarir graduated in communications from Marmara University then worked in the production of commercials and features. She made her directorial debut in features in 2009 with LOVE IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE, winner of prizes at festivals in Turkey and Ukraine.
