Turkey - a country torn between East and West, Islam and Islamophobia; permeated with both conservatism and post-modernity. As he travels across this fascinating and beautiful country, Szablowski heads for the most remote villages and towns to meet young women who have run away from honour killings, wives forced by their husbands into prostitution, a family of immigrants from Africa who dream of a better life, and Kurdish journalists and freedom fighters. A polyphonic portrait of contemporary Turkey, 'The Assassin from Apricot City' masterfully evokes the present-day dreams and hopes of ordinary people, weaving a story from their potent and mesmerising tales.
