Two characters meet on the opulent streets and shadowy alleys of Taksim, the commercial heart of Istanbul where every conceivable transaction takes place. She is a Syrian refugee, he a privileged westerner from northern Europe.
What follows is a dream-like dance, an impossible meeting where these two acknowledge and ignore the barriers between them. The anonymity of the metropolis and their own transience allows them to reinvent themselves, though in reality, they can’t escape who they are or what they represent.
The Sky is Safe is a love story, a war story and a microcosm of our time.
