Men, Women and Rash Decisions.
In a Time for Sleep (Bir Uyku Vakti) is a short film that drags you in from the start. We see Layla (Goknur Danishik) laying out her heart to her boyfriend Arda (Mehmet Fatih Güven, The Cleaner (short)), who could not care how much effort Layla has put in to celebrate their one month anniversary even though he had told her to leave that morning.
He really couldn’t care less about her feelings and when she says that she sometimes thinks it would have better not meeting him, he tests her resolve and in a hasty moment things change forever, especially when there is a knock on the door that won’t go away. It’s a woman (Elif Barut) looking for Arda, when she finds him she realises their nearly one year anniversary will be cancelled. The women work together to solve their problems in a time for sleep, by the next morning things have changed for the pair of young women.
