The Small Town

A young boy and his older sister who are living with their family in a small Turkish town struggle with school and growing up. Over the course of a year, the two children experience the changing of the seasons and spend time with their relatives, including a grandfather who loves to tell stories about his wartime service. The children spend much of their time outside, experiencing the natural world, lingering in a field or graveyard or by a river.
