...To Her

An independent production by

Zeki Demirkubuz & Nihal Koldas

My name is Yusuf Gnes.

I was born in Erzincan in 1965.

I've been in various state prisons

for the last 10 years.

I've served my sentence now

and will get out in three days.

As I lost my whole family

in the earthquake...

I have no one left out there.

I have nowhere to go,

no profession, no job.

That's why I'm asking you for help.

So I can spend the rest

of my life here in prison.

Otherwise, like it or not,

I'll have to commit a crime...

in order to get my

sentence extended.

But I sincerely believe that

you'll be understanding enough...

to make this unnecessary.

I would kindly ask you

to consider my situation.

Your photo...

Are you scared of your enemies?

- I don't have any enemies.

- Well then?

Like I said, I'm scared.

It's been a long time.

Don't you have

anyone out there?

Only my sister and her husband.

And they've moved somewhere else.

I don't know what to do.

Aren't you in touch with them?

My brother-in-law

sometimes sends money.

He also came to visit once.

So you're saying

there's no other alternative?

I had a friend in Malatya prison.

Orhan. He was from Istanbul.

His father ran

a coffee-house there.

He said I could go and help him.

That we could work together.

You have his address?

Yes. But then they sent Orhan

to another prison.

I never heard from him again.

That was years ago.

So if we don't let you stay here,

will you go and commit a crime?

Well, what kind of crime?

Have you decided?

Look, after I read your

petition, I got interested in you.

I went into your

whole case history.

You've been no trouble

as a prisoner.

You've had no

disciplinary offences.

The guards say you're quiet.

You're obviously not

a difficult person.

Plus, you're very young.

It's normal to be scared.

But it's a bit absurd to want to

stay here your whole life.

If your life's in danger or there's

any other problem, we can help.

Otherwise, what you suggest

is out of the question.

Not even the president

can let you.

If you insist on committing a

crime, that's up to you.

But then they'll raise

your sentence.

You'll get another 8 years

on your regular sentence.

You'll never be a free man.

Not even if you try.

Since you trust me as your elder,

I'd say, don't do it.

Obviously you'll regret it.

So will we.

Just wait and see. Give it a go.

If things don't work out,

do what you have to. All right?

Don't be shy.

If I'm being unfair, say so!


- Get up!

- What's the problem?

That's for you to say

down at the police station.

Come on! Get out!

Move it!

- Did they have any bags?

- No, sir.

Carry on then.

- Welcome...

A leg was broken on one of

the beds. I had to fix it.

What was he doing to break it?

He could have said so. Idiot.

The kid's sick.

She has a high fever.

Her parents will be here soon.

They're always late.

She should see a doctor.

She's soaked through with sweat.

You have your ID card?

- Where did you just come from?

- Adana.

- Where are you going?

- Istanbul.

- How many nights are you

staying? - I don't know yet.

Well, all right then.

We have free rooms anyway.

The prices are 350 for a single,

275 if you want to share.

There's a quiet boy. I'll put you

in with him, if you like.


You pay the first night in advance.

Sleep well. If you need anything,

I'm downstairs. - Thanks.

You're right.

The kid's in a bad way.

And her parents still aren't back.

- What should we do?

- She should see a doctor.

- Is it far to the hospital? - Far

enough. I'll go and call a taxi.
