About About Dry Grasses


Samet, a young art teacher, is finishing his fourth year of compulsory service in a remote village in Anatolia. After a turn of events he can hardly make sense of, he loses his hopes of escaping the grim life he seems to be stuck in. Will his encounter with Nuray, herself a teacher, help him overcome his angst?

Provided courtesy of Janus Films. Running time: 197 minutes. In Turkish, with English subtitles.
