Çeşme, an Aegean summer resort in Turkey. May. Two sisters from İstanbul, Lale (İpek Türktan Kaynak) and Yasemin (Esra Bezen Bilgin), are staying here, the playground of their childhood. After 5 years of minimal communication, these two women find themselves once again in the summer cottage of their late grandmother. Initially, everything seems fine: the weather is beautiful, the sea is pristine, and the town harbors the tranquility of the off-season… But the usual dynamics of sibling comfort and irritability come into play. Why are these two city women really here? And why do they gradually turn so emotionally vicious towards each other? Once the burden of devastating secrets are revealed, they have to decide whether this will bring them closer than ever or push them apart forever.

The film program What day is it today? is a parallel event of the exhibition SUMMER HOMES: Claiming the Coast which is on view at SALT Beyoğlu until November 16.
