Big Big World 

Turkey | 2016 | 101’ | Color | Turkish

Ali earns his life by working in a repair shop. The family adapted his sister Zuhal do not allow them to see each other. Ali tired of this situation takes his sister and they go faraway from İstanbul by his motorcycle. Ali and Zuhal take their first step into this big world committing a crime. It becomes impossible for them to live amongst people now, and the forest they take shelter in becomes a desert island for them. It will be a burden for the siblings to survive in wilderness in the forest and try to make money at the same time. A boy and a girl that were thrown out of the civilized world would live the entire human story from scratch.
