The story revolves around a prisoner who has been behind bars for almost 14 years, and one fine day he gets released. And on that day itself, he gets to meet his family from whom he has been away ever since he had been dragged into the world of crime.

Is Love Me Instead Based on a True Event?
Öztekin is one of those filmmakers who will leave you at the edge of your seats, thinking whether what you watched as a drama or a real event. The same is the thing which happened with this film as well. Öztekin has given many classics before, too, such as ‘Kaybedenler Kulübü Yolda’ and ‘Miracle in Cell no. 7’, which is the adaptation of a Korean movie of the same name.
Talking about Love Me Instead in general, it covers basic themes of human surroundings, which seem to be hidden in this glossy world but does affect one’s life in a severe manner. The evils of society like drugs and crime, along with revenge and redemption, make a family fall apart where we get to watch the loss of the head of the family.
This connects the audience with the emotions quite closely, but the children, too, are in a state of turmoil. The havoc which one has to face while being part of the cells can be clearly noticed. This brings forth the emotions which make all the plot of the story look too real to distinguish.
