Short Film Profile


Sanem lives with her son Ahmet and granddaughter in a small village of Ağrı. One day, Ahmet brings bad news. Sanem falls into an eternal mourning with the news of her son Zeki's death.

Sanem covers the picture of Zeki, the television, and the radio with a black cloth. She closes all the gates opening to the outside world. Sanem’s mourning gets her sick in the end. She starts to talk in her sleep and ask for “a handful of snow”. It is autumn; snow is about to come… So, Ahmet prepares his horse as he can’t endure his mother’s situation and he goes to distant mountains to bring snow for his mother.

Can Ahmet bring snow before his mother dies? Can Sanem get back on her feet? Or will there be another death?
