Mala Ahmet, the old leader of a Turkish tribe is suffering from cancer. While running away from the compulsory chemotherapy in the hospital he suddenly finds himself in a nursery home where he is confronted with a different but cruel culture of life: The old people are left alone to their destiny while they wait for their death to come, whereas old people of his own village in the south-east, are treated with utmost care and tenderness by their relatives.
I just finished watching this film, and I'm absolutely touched.... The message is clear and very effective....
I loved everything about it... Cultural diversity, horrible truth about senior homes, conflict between good and evil... I'm more impressed by Mahsun Kirmizigul who wrote and directed it than any experienced director... The cast is amazing...Acting is very powerful... They make you feel the characters...
It's become one of my favorites... When you watch it, I suggest, you should bring some tissues... Oh, and enjoy the beautiful Turkish music in certain scenes....
