While moving into a new flat, he comes across an audiotape of his mother and himself as a boy which was recorded to send to his father. Mehmet sets off for Elbistan to look for the tapes his father made and persuade his mother to come and live in Diyarbakir.

Beautifully made and filled with warmth

One of the most beautiful, warm and emotional films this year. Set in an obscure Turkish town, a caring son goes to his mother's house to try convince her to come live with him and his wife. He is concerned that she is becoming more frail and tries to help out with chores.

In doing so, boxes filled with memories emerge and suddenly this old house becomes alive again as we go back in time. This is done by locating some souvenirs, photos, clothes etc but more than anything a recorded tape of his father talking to his mother about being away, bringing up the children brought time back.

Beautifully made and filled with poignancy, this is an unanticipated cinematic piece.
