2020 Istanbul International Film Festival – Best Screenplay, Best Actress
"As a screenwriter-director who honed his craft in the 1980s, this is my contemporary response to the conventional Turkish cinema and my country's climate getting more oppressive by the day." said director Ümit Ünal. 
Eren and Reyhan had a love affair when they were teenagers and were forced into separation by their parents. Eren returns to the island 20 years later, but Reyhan believes what brings Eren back is not love but a spell that Reyhan put on Eren 20 years ago. The two women start a daylong journey in Büyükada, an Istanbul island, trying to remove the spell.
