Tabutta Rovasata (Somersault In A Coffin) is the true but allegorical story of a car thief who steals to keep himself warm during cold winter nights. Mahsun SUPERTITIZ is homeless and unemployed.
He lives in Rumelihisari (one of the most picturesque and oldest quarters of Istanbul), and tries to stay alive with the help of local fishermen. Mahsun loves cars, he steals at nights and in the mornings he drives them back clean and well kept. He lives to emphasize the strange togetherness of possibilities and impossibilities.
In this togetherness, Mahsun experiences friendship, trust, a one-way love affair and torture. He insists to survive in his open-air coffin of ancient Istanbul streets.
