It is a surreal, absurdist comedy revolving around the poetic love story of Layla and Majnun.
Mecnun (Ali Atay) and Leyla (Ezgi Asaroglu) were born on the same day in the same hospital. Since there were not enough beds in the hospital, the two babies were put to the same bed. Seeing this absurd situation and inspired by the poetic love story of Layla and Majnun, the fathers decided to give the names of Leyla and Mecnun to their babies and agreed to make them marry 25 years later.
Destiny brings Mecnun and Leyla together as newborns and again years later.
Even though Mecnun has never seen Leyla for 25 years, he cannot persuade her father and goes to Leyla’s house in order to ask her hand in marriage. He finds this situation nonsense. However, Mecnun falls in love with Leyla at first sight and wants to get married to her no matter what.Read More »
