My Short Words (2017) 8

Turkey | 2017 | 70 min.

On a hot summer day, three kids living in a poor Anatolian village go to a fountain, but see that it’s too small to swim in. They’ve always yearned to swim in the big lake which can be seen from the village, so they decide to go there by bike. However, this round-trip won't be that easy.
