Palme d’Or at Festival de Cannes in 1982 (ex-aequo with Missing, by Costa Gavras), the film was shot by Şerif Gören, long-time assistant of Güney, at the time in prison, and edited in France to where he managed to escape. A tale of a group of released prisoners dealing with military dictatorship in Turkey and the annihilation of Kurdish people. Banned for 35 years in Turkey, the film was restored and premiered in Cannes in 2017.
