This exquisitely observed and beautifully paced film follows 18-year-old Ismail and 25-year-old Hakan as they leave their village for the first time to start working in a huge all-inclusive hotel on the Turkish Riviera.

Living and working among the array of colourful bikinis, un-emptied plates and guests from all over the world, they gradually grow and discover new opportunities. All-in documents a coming-of-age within an artifice based on the European dream, and while the experience expands Ismail and Hakan’s lives, it comes at a cost, as initial kindness turns to indifference and Hakan struggles with the arrogance of the entitled guests.

In All-in, the hotel functions as the setting for a universal story about the loss of innocence that occurs when newcomers try to adapt to capitalist societies in the developed world.
