1984. Five years after the military coup in Turkey, a woman wanders the streets of Istanbul. The uncanny has enveloped the people and the whole city; something is missing. Friendships, casual conversations, boredom, search, loss and then a hopeful departure to the island. What is left of it all? Merlyn Solakhan's first film, Rhyme, starring Mustafa Irgat and Zümrüt Pekin, was screened at the Berlin Film Festival in 1986. Merlyn Solakhan's important film presents the transformation of a nursery rhyme into a tongue twister with a unique aesthetic that has never been seen before in Turkish cinema.
