Synopsis

Set in a Mediterranean sea-side village, Kamila cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa, but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra, out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa's return home - but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will incite rebellion.
