Atlikarinca / Merry Go Round

by Ilksen Basarir New World View

Married couple Erdem and Sevil live with their two children Edip and Sevgi in a small Turkish town. Their lives change dramatically when the family moves to Istanbul to be with Sevil’s mother, whose health is deteriorating. Ten years later, Erdem is still hoping to fulfill his dreams to become a writer, and Edip has gone to study at a boarding school. Sevil notices that her daughter Sevgi has become much more introverted and increasingly unhappy at home since Edip left. When she tries to discover why, she stumbles upon a dark secret well hidden behind closed doors. In MERRY-GO-ROUND, Ilksen Basarir has managed to create a direct and moving family drama dealing with a taboo theme.
