Turkish short film director and documentarian Kazim Oz presents his first hour-long narrative feature, The Photograph. Opening in Istanbul, a bus travels on its way to eastern Turkey. Relaxed Ali (Nazmi Kirik) and wound-up Faruk (Feyyaz Duman) sit next to each other on the bus and strike up a friendship, both claiming they are visiting relatives. After a 24-hour journey, the men cordially say goodbye without ever realizing the truth: that one is joining the Turkish military and the other is joining the Kurdish guerrillas. The conclusion finds them reuniting under different circumstances.
