The Grave - Jar


Sinan Uzun



Four little friends who earn money by praying, carrying water, and selling flowers in the cemetery in their spare time, while working as opponents, begin a union where they will share their earnings equally with the suggestion of the cemetery guard Mürsel. One day, the children who witness the existence of Ramazan sleeping in the cemetery decide to save up money for his dream of going to Istanbul. Realizing that Ramazan has witnessed his parents’ death in the past, and is being followed by the killer who saw him, children want to protect him. Growing up away from his father, Mustafa tries to prove to his father that he is not afraid of darkness and loneliness. Mustafa invites the orphaned Ramazan to their home on the eve of bairam. Impressed by his father’s praise at dinner for Ramazan’s courage, who has been sleeping in the cemetery, Mustafa runs away from home to spend the night in the cemetery. That night, Ramazan’s family’s murderer comes to the cemetery to kill Ramazan, an eyewitness, and kills Mustafa instead of him.
