Synopsis

This 1975 Yılmaz Güney film, which was finished by co-writer Atıf Yılmaz because Güney was sentenced to prison before he was able to complete the film, tells the story of three inmates who have been convicted of unrelated crimes. Their attempts at a normal life following their release prove futile and each starts looking for a way to get back in the prison. The three inmates each represent one of the various Turkish social problems of the era.
