This haunted reverie drops us inside an Istanbul retirement home, where the battle-scarred residents bask in the camera’s attention. A creaky- voiced woman confides her personal account of the Armenian genocide. A sweetly deluded pianist performs a composition before confessing his love. In a Tarkovskian dream-like landscape, pranksters, artists and old casanovas seduce us to confront the true nature of time.
