Yesterday, I overheard an old rock’n’roll song that sounded familiar. This is probably the music that we used to listen to on my dad's mechanical devices-the thousand lives man, the king of the juke-box.

    • Synopsis
    • A music I overheard, takes me back to my family history. My father is a juke-box-mad. As a juke-box, he shines and always stays unchanging. Though, I will find his frailty when I try the juke- box he gave me, the Jupiter. The machine breaks down and naturally, I call him for his technical skills as a handyman to repair the machine. But this time, it is not so easy. As my juke-box, my father didn’t escape the test of time. His shop becomes an intimate place where we can get closer. Memories come back little by little. While he is struggling with the mechanism, my father talks about his youth, his hippie’s past, his travels from London, to Istanbul or in Afghanistan. Fantasy and reality are blending, creating a colorful, crazy and funny story. I rediscover my childhood hero in a new light. And my own memories resurface.
