Millennials are full of potential, but often don’t know how to use it. To prevent this, a filmmaker takes control of his best friend’s life for one month. What makes your life a success?
Metin is a creative kid. The dance music he composes is innovative and he entertains interesting ideas about the world around him. Still, what he should do with his many talents he does not really know. For this reason, first-time director Vincent Boy Kars decides to make all decisions for his close friend for one month. He arranges a room, signs him up for a sport and encourages him to work on his musical career. Can this help Metin to learn to become independent and thereby get more out of life?
