Three siblings and a will: a drama full of black humour about a journey to a remote part of Turkey and the heart of a family.
For the last 30 years, Cemal, Kenan and Suzan have had no contact with their father, then he suddenly asks them to visit him in the village where he was born. Unwillingly, the siblings set out from Istanbul to the provinces – Cemal, the frustrated astronaut, who has never been in space; Kenan, the luckless actor who dubs cat videos; and Suzan, a teacher whose nerves are in shreds. When the trio finally arrive, their father is already dead. HIs final wish: to be buried on the hottest day of the year, when the butterflies come to the village to die.
