Venture into a Turkish retirement home, where the mischevious, wistful, and life-hardened residents live out an almost absurdly cyclical existence that brings to mind notions of limbo. Meanwhile outside, ominous construction equipment transforms the landscape that surrounds this oddly secluded space. Elderly denizens take refuge in their cherished memories in this immaculately composed, hypnotizing, and playful look at the aging process from an almost anthropological remove.
