Duet Poster


Mısra and Defne are two close friends and duet partners, who met each other through synchronized swimming, with their totally different characters. After failing to qualify for the 2016 Olympics, they set a shared goal, the 2020 Olympics. While struggling to make this dream happen, they try to cope with numerous problems such as the poorly run federation and the Covid-19 pandemic. Fighting for success in a suppressive country for women and LGBTI+, the duet partners will have to give a hard decision whether to keep the fight or to find new paths in life.
