    • Bornova Bornova is set at a time when dreams have dwindled and sanity is hard to hold on to. Even the prospect of a regular, routine life now holds great promise.
      Salih and Hakan, who spend their entire time outside the local grocery store hoping to get lucky one day, are like brothers. Hakan, the younger of the two, is just back from national service. The football career he longed for was over before it even began because of injury, leaving him with neither skills nor a job. His hope is to become a taxi driver. Salih, the local psychopath, is the only person who listens to Hakan, the only person to give him advice. Although he comes from a good family, and a well-educated one at that, Salih is mixed up in all manner of unlawful activity in the neighbourhood. Everyone is scared of him. Even the high-school girl Özlem. That’s the girl Hakan is crazy about, except he has never dared speak to her.
