    • Synopsis
    • Ceşme, an Aegean summer resort in Turkey. While it bustles with crowds of tourists in the summer months, the time is now May and the town is calm and empty. That is when two sisters from Istanbul, Lale and Yasemin, both in their early thirties, have to come to Çesme, the playground of their early childhoods. After 5 years of minimal communication, these two women find themselves once again in the summer cottage of their late grandmother. Initially, everything seems fine: the weather is beautiful, the sea is pristine, and the town harbors the tranquility of the off-season… But the usual dynamics of sibling comfort and irritability are at play. Little by little, questions are raised: Why are these two women really here? And why do they gradually turn so emotionally vicious towards each other? Once the burden of a devastating secret is revealed, it is up to them to decide whether this will bring them closer than ever or push them apart forever.
