Directed by Melisa Önel (Turkey, 2022, 115 min.). Turkish with English subtitles.

Fearing she has a serious illness after losing her sense of smell, Reyhan decides to leave her life behind, follow her instincts, and establish new bonds with the world. Among her adventures, she moves into her late grandmother’s flat, gets a random job at a hotel, and befriends a blind man. As Reyhan ventures away from the life prescribed to her, she goes back to the origins of her biggest wounds—to a fisherman’s coast where her childhood passed, and to a woman called Leman, with whom guilt and desire are meshed together. Just as assuming a new life begins to feel plausible, Reyhan realizes she has become a missing person. She wonders: Is this her chance for freedom?

“Lovely drama.… It is a film of unspoken truths and spontaneously revealing mysteries, wonderfully scripted by Melisa Önel.” —Asian Movie Pulse
