İtirazım Var

Boston Turkish Film Festival Award for Excellence in Turkish Cinema
will be presented to director Onur Ünlü following the film screening

Let's Sin | Itirazim Var

When a murder is committed at the mosque where Selman Bulut officiates as the imam, he rolls up his sleeves to solve the crime despite the police appearing to take little interest. However, the methods Selman employs are as unorthodox as he himself. The maverick imam and unconventional people around him all have some connection with the murder. Out there are long-hidden secrets, lies, a loan shark’s money, a ravenous dog, love, and a murder in which everyone is a suspect.
