Yusuf and his best friend Memo are pupils at a snowbound boarding school in Van, secluded in the mountains of Eastern Anatolia. When Memo falls mysteriously ill, Yusuf is forced to struggle through the bureaucratic obstacles put up by the school’s repressive authorities to try to help his friend.
Unpacking a mystery with a masterfully built narrative, Ferit Karahan tells a heartbreaking story of camaraderie and remorse. Winner of the FIPRESCI prize in Berlinale, this unflinching look at a snowbound boarding school reveals much about the inequalities buried in the history of Turkey.
