Synopsis

Early 1970s, Turkey. Born to actor parents, Deniz rebels against her father’s obsessively controlling nature by throwing herself into a life full of drugs, sex and partying. This self-destructive hedonism takes its toll and Deniz end ups in the hospital. Drained and alone she is finally forced to confront the demons of the past. With each new drawer that she pries open, crippling memories spring out. Will she sink under their weight or survive?
