Base lives on her own in Elbistan, southern Turkey. Her one hope in life is for her oldest son Hasan to come home and make a life for himself like everyone else. She attributes the silent phone calls she receives at home to Hasan. At around the same time, her younger son Mehmet, who lives in Diyarbakir, finds out that he's to be a father. 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. When Mehmet finds his mother unable to think of anything but Hasan, he slowly manoeuvres himself into her world, dealing with the repairs and garden jobs Base is keen to get done. At the same time, he hunts around the house for his father's tapes. Although Base tries to put Mehmet off, saying there are no tapes left, she fails to deter him. As Mehmet continues looking for the tapes, he begins ... Written by Orhan Eskikoy

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.
