The Puppet

"The Puppet" recreates sharp political crisis and bloody clashes, follows the collapse of the media to the level of primitive sensational and spectacular topics, and emphasizes the role of those who influence public opinion, their sense of responsibility and morality. Ahmet Umit depicts a truthful and vivid picture of unsuspected aspects of today's Turkish reality. Finally, the reader must answer who is the puppet - Doan, who was used for dark purposes, or Adnan, who lost his journalistic thrill. Does the system play with individuals as if they are puppets?
