Storyline

Nabat and her husband Iskender, an old and sick ex-forestry worker, live in a small isolated house far from the village. The war in Nagorno-Karabakh has been raging for some time and their son has been killed at the front. Their sole means of survival is the sale of milk from their only cow that Nabat takes to the village every couple of days. As the shadow of war envelopes the region the village is slowly deserted by its inhabitants. Following Iskender's death, Nabat has to survive in a now abandoned village under the regard of a she-wolf. Written by Dreamlab Films

Very sad movie
13 November 2020 | by zmilojevic-08107See all my reviews

This is one of the saddest movies I've watched.The film doesn't have many conversations, but that is exactly what leaves enough space to think and think about life, about aging, about dying of the village while watching the film.It reminds me of my village in Kosovo, which is now deserted because the old are dying and the young are leaving.Even at the beginning of the film it could be seen that even before they left, the villagers were so gloomy, life in the village was dying even before they left..The film has a deep meaning and I would recommend everyone to watch it at least once.
