“An unexpected reunion between a travelling musician and his son opens old wounds as the two set out on a long journey to a troubadour festival.”
The original Turkish title is Asiklar Bayrami, and the film is adapted from a novel of the same name by Kemal Varol.
A travelling musician with declining health makes an effort to see his son after 25 years, just after visiting his wife’s grave. Over feelings of resentment, grief and longing, the two set out on a journey to a music festival.
The son lets out his complaints and buried feelings, and the journey takes shape as not only a tale of travel, but also one of a hopeful reconciliation.
