Stone | Tas

In this story's universe, every person has a stone which he/she needs to carry from birth to death. The stone grows with that person and it is forbidden to put it away. In this strange universe, everything is so familiar: the neighborhood, the school, home, the marketplace, and the people... The film begins with the birth of a new baby, Muzaffer. What distinguishes him from the rest of the people in this universe is his curiosity. Muzaffer goes after a very simple question: What happens if I drop this stone which everyone carries?
