… They left a clock in the room; it makes me count the seconds. Tick tack, tick tack…
… Am I going to live alone, now? My heart is beating in a strange manner. Kut!... Kut!... Kut!...
… Don’t forget me. I don’t know whether it is sweat or tears. Pıt! Pıt! Pıt! Pıt!...
Three women from different generations, on their chairs, are telling their stories. It’s a fifty-year story in an ever-changing city’s landscape and Turkey’s socio-political context. You are more Beautiful than Istanbul is about building bridges. It's feminist, engaging, political and sometimes funny.
Ibn Khaldun says “Geography is destiny”.
