Curfew is set in Turkey on a June evening in 1980, a time of revolutionary conflict, a military coup, martial law, and curfew. Seven people—lovers, friends, relatives—are gathered in different parts of Turkey: Ankara, Istanbul, and the Anatolian town of Eskisehir. Throughout the evening, the characters play out their shared history, their disagreements, and their hopes. The original Uc Bes Kisi was written by Adalet Agaoglu, one of Turkey's leading novelists and playwrights.
