    • Synopsis
    • The year is 1984. During the martial law, a man writing graffiti on a wall is shot. The police catch a suspect at the scene. Somebody has written “Damn pussy (cunt)” in Turkish on the wall. A strange interrogation is ahead. What kind of an organization writes “Damn pussy” on the wall?

      And yet another surprise lies in store for the police. The person who has been caught at the scene speaks English and claims to be a US citizen, not a Turkish one. The police have to find the answer to a new question: is the suspect really an American national or is he lying to escape the torture?

      The police commence a new interrogation – this time with an interpreter present at the interrogation. The suspect does not confess to the crimes. In the end police think the interpreter has been lying all along. They start torturing the interpreter too.

      The suspect who speaks English is released.

      We see in the end that the first suspect speaks Turkish. He has persevered and has won.
