Storyline

Grandpapa and his family were torn from their land, forced to migrate from Crete during the population exchange when he was just seven years old. Grands greatest desire is to see the land of his birth before he dies. It is this longing that makes him frequently drop bottles containing letters into the Aegean. FILM describes the spectacular transformation of a family and their country through the eyes of a ten-year old child and his grandfather living in a small town. This story about the people in the crowded and warm Aegean, you will once again experience the population exchange, what it means to be the other, the ability to belong anywhere no matter where you go, insurrections, numerous minorities, and both side.

One of the best Turkish movies ever. If you watched "My father and my son" you should watch this movie.
