Mom may not love me... The film depicts the delicate mind of a girl who tries to divert herself from loneliness by coming in touch with nature's tolerance and cruelness in the mountains. A debut feature of the most anticipated and innovative Turkish female director.


Zephyr, a strong-willed adolescent girl, spends her summer at her grandparents' country home on the foothills of Turkey's Eastern Black Sea Mountains. She roams around carefree and helps her grandparents with daily chores. All the while she deeply longs for her mother and hopes that she will soon come to take her home. Her mother finally shows up, but only to say farewell before going far away places for a volunteer work abroad. But Zephyr's determination not to let her mother go, no matter what, is so strong that it leads to a tragic consequence.
