Yarinsiz Adam is a Turkish political film by Remzi Aydin Jonturk, the first in his trilogy. It was succeeded by Satilmi Adam (Sold Man) and Yikilmayan Adam (Indestructible Man), both filmed in 1977. The film is about the story of Murat, portrayed by Cuneyt Arkin. Murat helps his friend, Kemal, when they are escaping from the police because they steal to survive. This help costs Murat badly and he is sent to prison. During the runtime of the film, viewers see the world from the eyes of a criminal, who lived his childhood in poverty, and understand the gap between the rich and poor in Turkey.
Just like the themes of the other political films of Jonturk, there is a socialist message, an attribution to the inequality of the system. Jonturk prefers to do it rather sharply in some scenes of the film. For example, the poor little boy that gets in the car of Murat directly states that the rich and the poor can't be friends because wealthy people can't understand the feelings of poor people.
