Synopsis:
In a snowy Kurdish mountain village in eastern Turkey, Berfé, an old woman, and Jiyan, her young granddaughter, are troubled when the only man of the household, Temo, the son of one and father of the other, is arrested and taken into custody by the local gendarmerie. The commanding officer has received word that the villagers are hiding guns. It is announced that all the men of the village will be kept in custody until their families submit and hand over the guns they are hiding. But the problem is that there are no guns, at least to the knowledge of these two blameless women. Despairing and on their own, Berfé and Jiyan are faced with a long journey in search of a gun that they can exchange for their beloved Temo. But how can their innocence and naivety find a way out in a system that threatens, eventually, to drag them into the sullied world of an interminable conflict?
