Davud is a misunderstood, restless young man in search of his ‘true’ family, those whom he feels certain will bring love and therefore meaning to his life. Over the course of one strange day, pursued by men he has crossed and sure this day will be his last, Davud’s search leads him to encounters with a number of unexpected deaths and a series of women striving to liberate themselves from subjugation. As he journeys, each death and each liberation causes invisible memories and selfconstructednarratives to rise to the surface of his consciousness. Davud is propelled into a journey of self-discovery that leads him finally back to the place he has alwayslived, and the love that was always there.

Director Hilal Baydarov takes us on a dreamlike and enigmatic journey through a world of shifting structures, resisting narrative in favour of empathy, reason in favour of intuition, and irony in favour of curiosity. Shot against the vast landscapes of rural Azerbaijan and accompanied by an exquisite soundscape, In Between Dying is a powerful visualization of humanity on its fundamental quest for meaning.
