The King of Taksim Square

king of taksimÇağlar is just another apathetic teenager in Turkey.  He is, however very obsessed with his nine-year-old sister, Çiğdem.  He has been working with her as she learns to impersonate dancing like Michael Jackson.  When his initial attempts to broker her fame on national television do not succeed he decides to do what all fame-seeking teens do…put up a video on YouTube.  He soon finds that since he is not the only teen seeking fame, even though it’s not for himself, he needs to record his sister’s performance in a way that grabs attention and YouTube views.  Oh and his sister is just a wee bit precocious.
