    • Synopsis
    • In 1980, the filmmaker’s birth is overshadowed by the revolution. “I was born in the middle of a dream.” But another refrain runs through the film: “What am I to do with this legacy?” This family drama is a quest of identity and politics that takes us from Turkey in the 1970s to Switzerland in the 21st century, dealing with exile, prison, false money, fallen heroes, hippies gone astray and a revolutionary disco along the way. A mosaic of a film, which moves freely between documentary, fiction and animation.
