Plot Summary: Winner of the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival, "Once Upon a Time in Anatolia" is the new film from celebrated director Nuri Bilge Ceylan ("Climates," "Distant"). In the dead of night, a group of men - among them a police commissioner, a prosecutor, a doctor and a murder suspect drive through the Anatolian countryside, the serpentine roads and rolling hills lit only by the headlights of their cars. They are searching for a corpse, the victim of a brutal murder. The suspect, who claims he was drunk, can't remember where he buried the body. As night wears on, details about the murder begin to emerge and the investigators' own hidden secrets come to light. In the Anatolian steppes, nothing is what it seems; and when the body is found, the real questions begin.
