The pain of growing up, as seen by three Turkish youths: Ömer, the son of the local imam, who wishes the death of his father; his best friend, Yakup, who’s enamored with the village schoolteacher; and Yildiz, who is forced to balance her studies with the needs of her demanding mother.

MUBI's take

Winner of Best Picture and the Critics Prize at the Istanbul Film Festival, Reha Erdem’s intimate, poetic drama both explores the issue of its homeland and transcends national barriers, earning the film comparisons to the work of Satyajit Ray and Abbas Kiarostami. A vision of sheer beauty.
