Bonanza's Toilet tackles the idea that we tend to judge based on first impressions. Sometimes, they happen to be incorrect, but at other times, incredibly accurate. We were inspired by man's shameful tendency to blame certain individuals, particularly house keepers, when things are missing around the house. Furthermore, this film explores different degrees of what people might do when faced with something they want to possess, from mere desire to stealing with no second thought.
In this story, Fatma finds a job as a house keeper at Bonanza, a dull motel, where the owner, a middle-aged stern woman, sets odd house rules. The motel witnesses a series of strange happenings: a young man ready to largely tip the owner in order to get a room for the night despite the unavailability of the rooms, the presence of valuable things in unexpected places, as well as their sudden disappearence, leading to fingers being pointed at Fatma.
Support our idea because it deals with uncommon circumstances, and yet familiar attributes.
This is a psychological thriller that tests your ability to judge situations, people and yourself.
