Elif is 10 years old and her sister Ayşe is 13. It’s a sticky summer in 1980’s İstanbul. Elif plays freely outside, finding green pockets left between the growing number of construction sites. Elif drives her sister mad, for reasons she can’t quite grasp. Ayşe seems out of reach.

MUBI's take

Imbued with the melancholy of teenage longing, Burcu Aykar’s luscious coming-of-age story illuminates the interior lives of two sisters who have lost connection with each other. Set in a time when Walkmans were objects of desire, this sun-bathed short ignites a sensual nostalgia for the 1980s.
