With the drama Winter Sleep, director Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Once Upon a Time in Anatolia) earned Turkey its first Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Aydin (Haluk Bilginer) is a landlord and hotelier in a remote mountain region of Anatolia. Resting on the laurels of his former acting career, he spends time writing a column for the local newspaper, chatting with the foreign guests in the hotel and procrastinating on plans to write a book about the history of Turkish theater. As winter proceeds, Aydin's ongoing conflicts with relatives and neighbors prompt him to reconsider his priorities.
