MEN ON THE BRIDGE

by Asli Özge

synopsis

Three protagonists, whose lives barely intersect, all work around the Bosphorus Bridge, which connects Europe with Asia. Teenage Fikret sells flowers illegally to motorists and later tries to get a real job in a restaurant, but his slacker attitude gets him fired; lonesome cop Murat uses the Internet to find a girlfriend; and then there is Umut, who tries to find a bigger apartment to satisfy his young wife Cemile, whose ambitions are way beyond their income and put a strain on the marriage.
