Can a boy of nine be a big brother, a father, a mother and a luminary all at once? For young Ay?e, the answer is yes. In fact, as far as she’s concerned, her big brother Ahmet is afraid of nothing at all. But the truth is, Ahmet is a child too; and he too has his fears. Equally, it’s impossible for him to know everything. Their father Kazim has gone off to marry another woman and abandoned the two children to their fate with Hasan, their elderly and half-crippled grandfather. But in spite of everything, brother and sister never seem to lose hope. Set in a small village in Anatolia, this simple, poignant tale portrays the gritty realities of rural poverty, and the soaring power of the love between between a brother and sister.
