In a snowy Kurdish mountain village in eastern Turkey, Berfé, an old woman, and Jiyan, her young granddaughter, are troubled when the only man of the household, Temo, the son of one and father of the other, is arrested and taken into custody by the local gendarmerie. The commanding officer has received word that the villagers are hiding guns. It is announced that all the men of the  village will be kept in custody until their families submit and hand over the  guns they are hiding. But the problem is that there are no guns, at least to the knowledge of these two blameless women. Despairing and on their own, Berfé  and Jiyan are faced with a long journey in search of a gun that they can exchange  for their beloved Temo. But how can their innocence and naivety find a way out  in a system that threatens, eventually, to drag them into the sullied world of an interminable conflict?
Director's Statement
In the last 20 years there has been an ongoing "hidden" war situation in Turkey. I want to show through Grandmother Berfê’s story how absurd the war could become. I am not interested in making a hard-nosed political statement about a situation because we know that a bad situation entails loss and suffering on both sides. That’s why I prefer to use a device and story that could bring both laughter and tears, and hopefully, leave food for thought for the audience when they leave the theatre. I sincerely hope that through the journey of these two women we will also discover many things about ourselves and the world we’re living in.
