Elif is 10 years old, her sister Ayshe is 13. It’s a sticky summer
in 1980’s Istanbul. Elif freely plays on the street, finding green
areas left between construction sites. While trying to see her newly emerging breasts in the bathroom mirror, Ayshe falls, injures herself and spends the summer lying on the couch. Elif drives her sister mad, for reasons she can’t quite grasp. Irritated and depressed, Ayshe seems out of reach.
