The dramatic story of a family in rural Turkey dealing with the intergenerational clash of traditions and ambitions.

In Detail

The orphaned teenager Burak has been brought up by his uncle, Cemil, and his grandmother on a smallholding in rural Turkey. While Cemil contents himself with a primitive life of religious observance, his nephew dreams of the city and university; but he must settle for running a roadside fruit stall.

When the grandmother falls seriously ill, tough decisions are required for both man and boy. Minimal dialogue and striking photography add to the mood of quiet desolation in this impressive directorial debut.
