    • Synopsis
    • Veysel abandoned his past, his family and his urban life to live in the woods and be closer to nature. But one day the land where he leads his wild life is sold to investors. His younger brother Hasan comes from the city to convince him to leave. As the imminent threat of eviction rapidly grows, the belated confrontation of the two brothers leads to the discovery of a magical home: a universe under the earth… An extraordinary story about an attempted return to nature. How much of our humanness can we leave behind? How much of evolution can we rewind? Or maybe our contemporary existence and primitive cores are not as incompatible as we think?
