Zait is working under the daily surveillance of primitive technology. To fit in the system means to survive. Something happens one day that forces Zait to start to slowly doubt the system. He certainly won’t like the things he will discover – the question is, what can one single man standing against oppressive machinery do? The Turkish feature film In the Shadows, starring amazing Numan Acar, is a post-apocalyptic bite-sized snack that poses as a metaphor for clinical depression and as a criticism of capitalism.
