Arrested during university years, Yusuf is released from prison after ten years. While recovering from “Return to Life” operations held by the state, he is welcomed home by his old mother. Soon he will meet Eka, a beautiful Georgian girl who is a sex worker.
This film is the tale of two deserted souls coming from different backgrounds and trying to hold on to life. A visual poem depicting love’s bitter nature, Autumn is one of modern Turkish cinema’s most sublime works and one that reveals the violence of state politics in the late 90s.
