    • Synopsis
    • In Flames is a road comedy that tells the story of a fire engine—a gift of the city of Diyarbakır to the town of Çayırbağı in the province of Trabzon—overlapping with an amorous adventure. Koshman the firefighter has the duty of bringing home to the Turkish province of Trabzon the gift from a Kurdish city, Diyarbakır: a fire engine. Koshman is obsessed with fire trucks. Yet, as a nationalist, he is unwilling to travel to the Kurdish city due to his ideological sentiments. Ultimately, this sweet man from the Black Sea region finds himself in Diyarbakır. When he begins the road trip back home on the fire engine, he is accompanied by a mysterious guest; he encounters stunningly beautiful natural scenery; and ahead of him lays a long way to go and an unusual adventure. Koshman’s whole life changes as a result of a return trip filled with bombs, love, violence, sorrow and laughter.
