When a dishwasher has an affair with a colleague, he discovers he looks uncannily like her husband, a criminal serving time, and a threatening game of doppelgangers gradually unfolds. The story, loosely based on Hitchcock's Vertigo, is presented in a darkly comic way using carefully framed shots and minimal dialogue, as an exploration on identity unfolds.


Tayfun Pirselimoğlu (Trabzon, Turkey) graduated from the Middle East Technical University in Ankara and studied painting at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. His work has been exhibited in various major cities. He also writes books and screenplays, as well as teaching screenwriting, cinema and painting.
