This is a trip through the mind and everyday life of  "others’ land”: the land of adolescents with mental illnesses who live in state clinics in Turkey. The so-called "Children of the State".


Oğulcan Arslan tells through borderless words of his schizophrenic friend "who loves to wear red", the color and the inner monsters of that world, thanks to a reckless and sometimes disturbing fantasy.
