The feature is set in the oldest zoo in Turkey, which in the film is undergoing privatisation with one obstacle remaining– an endangered Anatolian Leopard. When the zookeeper finds the animal dead, he is determined to keep the news secret and tells the police it has escaped from its cage. This is director/writer Emre Kayiş first feature. We worked together previously on a short film entitled The Translator.
