Synopsis

Based on a true event which for many epitomises the faults in the Turkish legal system, Pardon tells the tragicomic story of three friends who end up in prison when they are mistaken as members of a terrorist organization.

The Writer, Ferhan Sensoy is a popular director and actor in Turkish theatre where he is well-known for his spontaneous political criticism. He generally performs on stage in his own theatre which means that not many outsiders get to see his work. "Pardon", in that sense, is reaching out to people who can not come to watch his plays.

A posting from Istanbul on the IMDB states “The story is one of the true stories of Turkey about its legal system faults. The acting and directing is superb. I have watched it three times in the same week and laughed each time.”
