Waiting for the Clouds

In 1975, the sixty-year-old Ayshe lives in a Turkish fishing village west of Trabzon, where she has been becoming increasingly lonely since the death of her older sister. The neighbor boy Mehmet, to which she has developed a grandmotherly relationship, cares about her. Nobody knows about Ayshe‘s secret: Before her adoption 50 years ago, she was the daughter of orthodox Pontic Greeks who lived in Turkey. Her baptismal name was Eleni. Fifty years after the separation from her brother, she is now willing to explore her roots and find her lost brother in Greece.
