Bengaluru International Film Festival - BIFFES

Synopsis

Lieutenant Sinasi, Major Kemal, Major Rifat and Colonel Reha are in charge of the Istanbul phase of a coup that will take place in May 1963 in Ankara. Since the four soldiers believe that a strong announcement is a vital part of a successful coup and attracts the people, they plan to read a version of the original coup announcement that will be read in Ankara. However, there is one thing that they do not take into account: the invisible power of the civilian life.
