Anneler Günü

A Film by Merve Cagla Dincer

Synopsis

MOTHER’S DAY
Senem (28) lost her child while giving birth four years earlier. In the years that follow, on every Mothers’ Day she drinks alone at a bar, as she despises the day. Elif (24) lost her mother many years earlier; nevertheless, she has kept up the habit of buying presents for her mother on every Mothers’ Day. Every year, she starts Mothers’ Day by taking the present she bought for her mother to her grave, and ends the day by drinking alone at a bar until she passes out. On this particular Mothers’ Day, these two women, who had never met before, pick the same bar and experience an interesting night.
