Close-up of an astronaut's face. The astronaut is Cemal. Kenan dubs home videos for a living. In a classroom, kindergarten teacher Suzan weeps frantically. They are the sons and daughter of Mazhar. Now, after being 30 years apart, their father calls them back home to their village of Hasanlar. They don't know why. When they arrive to Hasanlar, they realize that their father is dead and in his will he asks to be buried when the butterflies come to the village to die; one of the many strangeness of this village. Three siblings who neither know each other nor anything about their father will have to kill time in this village while waiting for the time of the butterflies. As they start to find out more about their father and about each other, they also start to know more about themselves.
I absolutely loved this director's previous film Ivy, hence the disappointment in this movie was doubled after watching it.
I didn't think any of the characters were likable. The "there are random things happening, therefore it should be considered funny" concept was uninteresting and not funny. Everyone was constantly repeating each others sentences with a question mark in the end, which i found to be pretty lazy writing. There were way too many unnecesarry conversations/scenes that did not serve any purpose to the progression of the story. I'm finding it hard to find an aspect of this film that is better than very bad.
The movie is about 3 reunited siblings who hear from their father after 30 years and their journey to the countryside to see him.
