One of the masters of the traditional Turkish Shadow Play, Hasan Hüseyin Karabağ is meeting with the audience of Izmir again. Being involved in the fight of two lovers from the same neighbourhood, Karagoz is punished by the grandmothers of the lovers. Putting Hacivat in trouble, who is trying to rescue him, Karagoz truly messes things up. In the performance which is loaded with epic elements, a constant component of the tales appears; witches. Just like the shifts in William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream, the performance shifts as well and displays Anatolia’s rich world of tales.
