The Turkish film director stars as a self-centered college professor whos going through the motions with his girlfriend, played by the directors real-life wife. Shes a younger member of a TV crew who has problems communicating. Their bond breaks during a summer vacation, but it becomes clear that its been frayed for quite some time. After the split, she moves across the country; he hooks up with an old lover (in a disturbing sex scene thats not what it seems).
