Consequences | Silsile | Ozan Aciktan | Boston Turkish Film Festival

Cenk has just returned to Istanbul from the United States. Suppressed love slowly begins to resurface when he encounters Ece, a woman he has been romantically involved with in the past. Suddenly, an attempted robbery on a quiet, gloomy house results in a crime being committed. Ece flees the scene of the crime, cueing the arrival of Faruk, Cenk’s best friend and Ece’s fiancé. The two best friends struggle to keep their secrets hidden from one another. An interwoven chain of events unfolds as these three urban characters are put to the ultimate test, their sufferings and disappointments being dragged to the surface for all to see.
