The 'somewhere' that is 'in between' could be the once important industrial area, now faceless economic wasteland, where teenagers Zehra and Olgun spend their lives caught somewhere in between the past and an uncertain future. Or it might describe the end of childhood innocence as Zehra begins an obsessive sexual relationship with a middle-aged truck driver, which incenses Olgun. Yeşim Ustaoğlu's powerful and uncompromising film brilliantly blends images, emotions and social issues, and Neslihan Atagül's performance is nothing less than sensational.
