Summary

Ali is a 43 year old cameraman. With the birth of his son, he turns his camera to his own life. Ali, who is very interested in the care of his son, tries to prove to his father that it is possible to take care of a child alone, under the influence of his childhood with a stepmother. Unable to escape his usual life cycle, he returns to his father and bids farewell to his son.

Good Times is a film-within-a-film narrative that takes place in a time loop between fathers and sons, from childhood to childhood. It wants to emphasize the continuous relationship and integrity of human history and personal history, present and past, pain and happiness, reality and reflection, and of course art and life. The only condition for an outdated life in a fairy tale is to be able to accept the once-in-a-lifetime law.
