The title of this stark political melodrama translates to Cloud in Love. Zuhal Olcay plays the central character, a Turkish wife and mother. Arrested on what seem to be highly suspect charges, Olcay is exposed to the horrors of the Turkish prison system. Her spirit broken by systematic torture, she finds it impossible to convey her pain and humiliation to her family when she is finally released. Kara Sevdeli Bulut is very much a one-man operation: Muammar Ozer not only directed, but also wrote and photographed the film.
