SYNOPSIS: Winner of both the Audience award and a Jury Award at this year’s Slamdance Film Festival, this beautifully nuanced film rewards viewers with an emotionally intelligent story about love and loss. Full of subtext, the subtle plot follows a pregnant woman who returns to her seaside home village in Turkey with her new American husband only to encounter her childhood sweetheart. The casting is perfection and the acting carefully captures the inner turmoil of these well-developed characters. With an unhurried pace, the camerawork evokes a sense of place and point of view and the cinematography takes full advantage of the beauty of the Turkish seaside setting.
