The Cliff Shore (en production)

by Mehmet Can MERTOGLU


Cüneyt and Bahar are a married couple in their late thirties living and working in Antalya, in southern Turkey. They decide to adopt a baby after failing to bear one through biological means. While waiting for their turn, they start preparing a photo album of a pseudo pregnancy period, so that the baby will, in the future, consider them as biological parents too. In this album there are photos of Bahar, dressed-up as pregnant, posing at a day trip, by a cliff, at the tax office… The couple also hopes to leave Antalya to start a new life. The day they adopt the baby, they complete their album with a few photos taken at a hospital, where Cüneyt’s doctor friend arranges them a fake birth mise-en-scène. The couple’s wish to leave Antalya becomes possible in a short time with some bureaucratic influence and Cüneyt gets assigned to Kayseri in central Anatolia.
