Sükran is searching for her 20-year-old son Veysel, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances with his best friend Halil. When the police show her the body of a young man that could be Veysel, his girlfriend identi- fies it but Sükran insists it is not her son. She discovers that a prisoner with her son’s same name has escaped from jail and is headed to the town of Mardin, and sets out to find him. Innowhereland is Tayfun Pirselimog ̆ lu’s debut feature, and winner of the Special Grand Prize of the Jury at the Montreal World Film Festival.

“There were a lot of missing people – no one knows the exact number – after the 1980s and still today the moth- ers of the disappeared get together in Istanbul on Saturdays. Some of these mothers were in Innowhereland and the authorities tried to ban the film.”
