In the summer of 2016, following an ISIS airport bombing and a military coup in her home country, Turkish filmmaker Zeynep Sertbulut experienced a temporary psychotic episode for the first time. Now back at graduate school in New York City, she works to come to terms with her significant emotional detour as she tries to recover. Documenting various stages of her recovery, Back to Me is an exploration of identity and change in the midst of conflict as well as the relationships between political events, vulnerability, and personal trauma.
