Review

This movie is a cruel play within the magnetic field of the Dardenne brothers style. The fact that the movie handles the fight for survival of a young girl and betrayal of the world, this film reminds us of ''Rosetta'' by the Dardenne brothers. The wish of a quiet teenage girl Serab is to live in a small house with her truck driver dad. Within the watch of her half brother and the cold people of the world Serab tries to make her wish come true by saving money.
However, the minute she realizes she misinterpreted love over sacrifice and deception all the things that held her up collapses. This movie coldy expresses the disappointment of someone fighting the harsh reality to fulfill one’s dream. The last shoot of Serab looking very lost, leaves a emotional turbulence in our hearts.
