Movie Info

A provincial family living on Turkey's southern Mediterranean coast finds their leisurely pace of life suddenly interrupted when the father suffers a sudden brain hemorrhage while away from home on a business trip. Ten year old Ali (Tayfun Gunay) lives with his family in the town of Silifke. He's constantly picked on at school, and as the summer vacation begins he's upset that he hasn't received one of the homework books that's been issued to the rest of his classmates. Meanwhile, Ali's older brother Veysel (Harun Ozuag) returns from the military academy to reveal that he's dropping out to study business management at the local university. His father Mustafa (Osman Inan), a stern agricultural merchant, makes no attempt to mask his disapproval of the plan, and informs Veysel that should he choose to walk that path he will be on his own monetarily. Mustafa's wife Guler (Ayten Tokun) is the emotional anchor of the family, and suspects that her husband has recently taken a mistress. All of these minor problems are eclipsed, however, when Mustafa suffers a debilitating brain hemorrhage while traveling for his job. Though it won't be easy readjusting to life after such a tragedy, this family is determined to make do and carry on no matter what hardships life throws their way. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
