Viewing Notes:

The film plot reveals two (main) characters, one of whom is a poor proletarian featured by Erdal Özyağcılar—a conservatory student at that time. Today, Özyağcılar is a professional Turkish actor—popular both in and outside the country, especially for his appearance in Yabancı Damat (2004-2007). Yabancı Damat [The Foreign Groom], an example of the Turkish television genre—dizi, was broadcasted in the United Arab Emirates as well as many Balkan countries, such as Greece and Serbia.

Samim Kocagöz is a well-known, multi-award winner Turkish author and novelist. Some of his works were translated into Bulgarian, German, and Russian. Kacagöz and his literary corpus are associated with the social realist movement in Turkish prose.
