Balkan Survey

Destiny / Zeki Demirkubuz

Bakir, a carpet salesman, is in love with Ugur, a nightclub entertainer. Ugur is obsessed with Zagor who is constantly breaking the law. One hot and stifling summer night, one thing leads to another and Zagor commits murder.That same night, Ugur disappears. Eventually relieved to be rid of Ugur, Bakir gats married and slowly turns his life around. A few months later, when Zagor receives a long prison sentence for his involvement in the killing of two policemen, Bakir is hopeful that his rival’s imprisonment will open up a possibility for him with Ugur. He begins chasing after her, picking up her traces in provincial nightclubs and seedy motels. Ugur goes after Zagor, Bekir goes after Ugur. Families are torn apart, children grow up like orphans, and yet innocence is never lost.
