Storyline

After several years of numbly mourning his parents death, 26 year old Selim (Cevik) takes a chance on the US lottery for passports and wins. He decides to sell the family olive grove to raise enough money to live in Manhattan and to break all roots to Turkey, leaving his girlfriend behind. When Selim's aged grand uncle, Nasuhi (Keskin) returns from Russia after 58 years he asks Selim to visit with him the olive grove of his youth. Before they depart, Nasuhi finds a beaten Russian girl, Olga (Bielska) who was robbed when she tried to sell herself to raise money to continue her own search for her sea faring father. The three of them visit the olive grove and still standing farmhouse, which Nasuhi immediately starts to repair. Upset with his grand uncles enthusiasm Selim quickly finds a developer who buys the olive grove and reluctantly takes title to the farmhouse as well. Written by Maple-2

I think it's one of the best first films ever any director made it before
9 September 2008 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Even though this film is the first film of the director Semih Kaplanoglu he is very successful indeed. He has a way of saying things poetically, smoothly and touching to our souls instantly. In leading roles we meet with three characters whom looking for their roots and their future hopelessly in their inner and outer journeys. Our global worlds giving us idea of different country, homeland concepts. Most of the young people thinking of living far away from their country but they are trying keep the idea of homeland in their minds. Of course its not easy the describe this film as a story teller director uses various techniques.
