For her third feature film, acclaimed Turkish director Yesim Ustaoglu (Journey to the Sun) weaves a moving tale about the meaning of identity and the power of home.

Along Turkey s northeastern Black Sea coast, beautiful valleys shrouded in mist hide terrible secrets about the country s bloody past. An elderly woman looks back on her long life after the death of her sister. For over 50 years, she has carefully guarded a secret about her distant past, but grief threatens to expose that she and her sister are Greek, not Turkish. In the early 1920s, after the Turkish war of independence, Greeks were forcefully deported. But the old woman and her sister hid their true identity for five decades. Now she feels compelled to search for a long-lost brother in Greece.
