Ten years after being thrown out of her parental home, Nur hears that her mother is at death’s door. Taking her young daughter with her, Nur hurries back to her father’s world to see, and reconcile with her mother before it is too late. While the universal theme of mother-daughter relationships lies at the centre of the film, this is underpinned by an allusive subtext of incest, one of most common but least addressed social problems in Turkey. The individual stories of the family members combine with a sense of hope fuelled by tragedy to paint a portrait of the socially disconnected.
Mehmet Ery?lmaz graduated from the radio and television department of Marmara University. He continued his studies at the cinema and television department of Mimar Sinan University. After graduation, he started writing and directing his own short, experimental and documentary films. He has also earned recognition for his series of documentary films on traditional Turkish music. Selected filmography: The Songs of Naz?m Hikmet (2002), A Fairground Attraction (2008), A Holiday Morning in ?stanbul (2011).
