A Turkish Delight

In order to keep it a secret that they had to adopt a child, middle class Turkish couple Bahar and Cüneyt are willing to do almost anything. To that end, they go to great lengths faking Bahar's pregnancy and take great care to document every step of the process in their family album. At times absurd and darkly comic, Mehmet Can Mertoglu's feature film debut ALBÜM presents an original and eccentric look at Turkish society and its views on infertility and adoption.
