First screened in October 2014
Director: Elcin Musaoglu Guliyev. Cast: Fatemeh Motamed Arya, Vidadi Aliyev, Farhad Israfilov, Sabir Mamadov. Screenplay: Elkhan Nabiyev and Elcin Musaoglu Guliyev.

Twitter Capsule: Vaguer on heroine's POV than you'd think, with so few folks in the film. But pained, poetic study pays other rewards.

VOR:   As moving as it means to be, or very nearly so, and the tight lid on dialogue is a moderate risk while also—like the rest of the film—pretty much honoring classic festival-drama contours.
