1001 Nights tells the story of EMA (85) and MAJA (80), the most loyal viewers and the funniest critics of Turkish soap operas. For the last five years, Ema and Maja have spent every evening together, watching Turkish series in Ema’s apartment in the Mediterranean town Split as a way of coping with loneliness. This is a story about a microcosmos that appears where we least expect it, but when we need it the most. It is a story of a friendship that started when everything else ended.
