    • Synopsis
    • An amateur psychedelic jam band from Istanbul load their equipment in a 1980-VW van and hit the road to mainland Turkey. Fueled by the openness of their bohemian philosophy, the spirit of social change promised by the upcoming presidential elections, and a nostalgic appreciation for 1970s Anatolian Rock, they make stops in random cities to give free, impromptu concerts. With a well-meaning attitude on one hand and difficult music on the other, the band engages in an experiment with its complicated country. As they drift from city to city among inquiring old ladies, baffled security guards, eager cab drivers, depressed teenagers, radio news, election rallies, cheap motels, political TV shows, YouTube videos, plains, roads, and mountains, they find themselves moving towards an increasingly uncertain destination.
