Film Website



An island off the coast of Istanbul is evacuated because of an impending earthquake. Most of the islanders flee to the mainland. But a few refuse to go. For them, life in the reigning apocalyptic climate gets harder by the day. The horses are affected by a mysterious illness, making them so weak they can no longer move. Then it appears to spread to the humans. A group of desperate women throw all their energy and hope, courage and faith into the fight against their fate. The film follows their inspirational journey through various dimensions of existence.


In his early 20s, Reha Erdem (*1960) went to Paris to study film. His international breakthrough came with Mommy, I’m Scared (2004) and Times and Winds (2006).
