Kelebeğin Rüyası / The Butterfly’s Dream

The storyline, set in the early 1940s of Turkey, revolves around two good friends, Rüştü Onur and Muzaffer Tayyip Uslu, who make a living out of publishing their poems at a time when life appears hard with World War II in its full swing across the world. The story takes a turn when both fall in love with the same girl, and life changes for them trying to survive against the rigid social class system and the religious barriers of the time, which jeopardize their love life, their friendship and their profession.

Written and Directed by : Yılmaz Erdoğan
