Ships 2 (380x203).jpgOfficial Synopsis: “Ships (Ferahfeza) centers on Ali (Ugur Uzunel, El yazisi), a young shipyard worker and restless romantic who, during the day, thinks about the importance of coincidences. One such coincidence is his encounter with the strong and energetic Eda (M. Sitare Akbas, Bensiz), a graffiti artist. Together, they embark on a quixotic adventure through Turkey's industrial port-cities hoping to escape the suffocating routine of their daily lives by finding the ship that Ali has only seen in his dreams.”
