Turkish drama following the fortunes of a Kurdish mother and son as they attempt to come to terms with the past and the fragmentation of their family. Anyone familiar with European history will be aware of the forces of repression capable of tearing Kurdish families in Turkey apart in the recent past. Basê (Basê Dogan) is one such mother. She spends so much of her time pining for the return of her long-lost eldest son Hasan that she pays little attention to her younger son Mehmet (Zeynel Dogan), who has developed an interest in the family history after discovering some old audiotapes made by his father. What will he discover?
