The Lawyer

Halil, an internationally renowned lawyer, has trouble tidying up his newspaper articles. He thinks about the unresolved cases of the past and the current dictatorship. His concentration is impaired. On the one hand, Halil's wife Sevim is worried about Halil's health and the pressures. Halil tries to give the impression that everything is fine.

Halil goes to television programs and conference programs that he has to attend. However, he sees the mask hanging on the sun visor of the car on the street and has an accident because he remembers a bad memory. With Halil's life in danger, everyone thinks it is sabotage. This accident has national and international consequences. The professor and his students coming from Germany, who will attend the conference with him, are also very worried and unfortunately the public meeting planned for the conference takes place in the hospital.

Director Statement

Here are the things that are painfully etched in our memory in our recent history:

Unjust and unlawful executions, murdered and journalists attacked, bureaucrat, politician, lawyer, writer, artist, upright and fearlessly, many say...

And who carries all their tenderness in his heart,
We witness the experiences of lawyer Halil, who became the representative of the flag of justice in a difficult environment.

While everyone thought it was an assassination, accident is happening. Therefore, many elements of curiosity and surprise developments in the story keep the audience alive.
The film wants to draw attention to these unsolved murderers and their oppression regimes, which should not be forgotten.
when people finish the movie, they see with a living memory that a lot of things still haven't changed and they are asked not to give up the struggle.
