Waking Dream

Aylin is a 30-year old woman still living at home with her mother. She escapes her oppressive life through a fantasy world by pretending to be an astronaut. She finds comfort in her only friend, a goldfish, and by submerging her head in water whenever she faces verbal and physical abuse by her mother. One day she receives a job offer through the phone, and despite resistance from her mother, decides to finally move out of her parental home to start a new life.
