Breathe

It may not always be life that brings people together. This time, death will open new doors.
A middle aged, grumpy man who hasn’t been able to avail neither himself, nor others, and has always depended on his friends in order to hang on to life: Tamer. He abandoned his studies as well as his goals, marriage, family, at times his friends. Aslı, a woman in her early 30’s, sharing the same house with her mother and brother, purposeless and unemployed. On the contrary to Tamer, Aslı is full of life and yet, introverted. She has found herself a friend, a mentor and a guide. A caregiver, who is considerably ordinary, psychologically disconnected from life and instead stays with his patients until their last breath: Celil. What brings these three characters together is their desire to hold on to life, which they have di erent perspectives of.
